Why I Love Bees – An Alternate Reality Game Primer presented by Geoff May
In 2004, an advanced Artificial Intelligence from the year 2552 became stranded in our antiquated 21st century internet. This helpless complex code had to re-organize itself, and during that process befriended a large community of sympathizers, who successfully sent her back to whence she came, in an emotional farewell. …But what does that have to do with bees? Come and find out how this awesome trending form of entertainment – ARGs – has grown over a decade, and what it’s all about! Geoff May runs www.4DFiction.com and www.Wikibruce.com, news and resources for creators and players alike, and has been known through the ARG scene since 2004, thanks to the Halo 2 ARG “I Love Bees”.
