Open Tokenomics Event--Everyone Invited

Tuesday, Feb. 15th, 6-8pm
1590 Bryant St., San Francisco
This is a free event

Good news for everyone out there interested in experimental applied improv, and particularly for those who happen to live in the Bay Area. The SF Behavior Lab project will be holding its first public open event in San Francisco next month--on Feb 15th to be precise. The event is open to all, and will happen from 6pm to 8pm. Afterward, we’ll be going to grab some dinner in the neighborhood and you’re welcome to join us for that too.

The evening will require no improv training and will hopefully have something to offer both interested laypeople and experienced improv trainers looking for new workshop ideas. There’ll be an opportunity for improv professionals to share experimental games in a safe setting, and also plenty of new games to try out. While we build up steam, we'll be keeping the Behavior Lab events free, so make sure you invite anyone you know who’s looking for a fun evening out.

The focus of this first session will be on Tokenomics--the topic I gave a talk on at the world applied improv conference in Amsterdam this year. When I spoke again at the Bay Area mini-conference in December, we didn’t have enough time to explore games that addressed this topic. Next month’s session will hopefully address that imbalance, and give everyone in the area a chance to try the material out for themselves.

If you don’t yet have a clear idea of what Tokenomics is or what I’m talking about, the good news is that you can now find out through the Behavior Lab website. This talk is a little rushed (I was trying to squash about 45 mins worth of slides into about 25 mins) but will give you a sense of what’s in store. It should be a very entertaining evening, and hopefully highly informative too.

The Feb. 15th event will be held at Sports Basement, at 1590 Bryant St. in San Francisco. Sports Basement has generously offered a 20% store-wide discount that evening for anyone connected with SF Behavior Lab, so be sure to come early and browse the aisles.

PS: For those of you who have already signed up at the Behavior Lab website, please take another look and check that your membership still exists. The site encountered some minor teething troubles at the end of last year, and some attempted sign-ups were lost. (We want everyone who wants to play with us to get to!)

Hope to see you all there!
