'Virtual' Virus Sheds Light on Real-World Behavior

A recent outbreak of a "plague" in a popular online game has scientists considering how the virtual world may provide clues to what people would do in real-world pandemics. In the role-playing game World of Warcraft, a "corrupted blood" spell killed characters and affected players in unexpected ways.

@sylin this is a workshop??
dzn 02:36:53
Can’t quite tell what exactly they get up to
itsmisscs 05:30:32
It was a course and event, I believe. Really great content
sylin 08:21:02
K2 winter school. It's a weeklong event set to confront the boundary of design by having design futurists, design educators facilitate a workshop together with students, citizens, young designers ... and look at contemporary real social issues as their design challenges.
I think the workshop itself is interesting because it's not only teaching design thinking but also asking why design thinking didn't work in some fields/topics.
The talks they have in between were trying to explore the possible discipline change, paradigm shit in near future.

article that @sylin sent. I could have done without the introduction but their case studies are useful!
dzn 23:37:50
very useful for thinking about experimental design for civic problems
dzn 23:44:54
@sylin Do you have any detailed manuals for the vTaiwan and PO network projects? (right from how they were designed, all the way to outcomes)
dzn 23:45:26
if not, that will be super useful to put together
dzn 23:51:57
it will be useful for others to replicate your process and as core material which can be pieced away and used in many combinations
