Some questions raised:

  • How do you keep people moving between activities?
  • What will ALA Open Gaming look like night year?
  • What one piece of advice can you give to someone interested in getting involved in this games and gaming movement?
  • How do you deal with food in gaming programs?

I covered the winners of the ALA Gaming Citation, which I blogged about a few weeks ago.
