Playful: Smart People Plus RPS-Games-Ramble

Completely forgot to mention this. The Thinkosium - sold out within hours and we've just had the final guest confirm, who's a splendid addition - is obviously the biggie, but there's more to RPS and the London Games Fringe than that. I'm actually speaking at Playful, which is a day long event on the 31st of October where various chaps and chapesses have a good old ramble. And there's a video of me yabbering beneath the cut about what I plan to speak about...
