They’d done analysis of every game in the 1966 world cup – the first to be recorded – and discovered two critical things… Continue reading Have you seen data, ‘best practice’, benchmarking, or ‘learning’ applied in ways which block innovation? →chosen-path.org

Reshaping ownership within adult social care | CLESOver the last 30 years, Britain has shifted from having a market economy to being a market society where large swathes of public services are outsourced to the private sector.

Magic circles – by Gordon Brander – SubconsciousThere’s this lens from games studies that I keep coming back to, the “magic circle”.

The arena, the card table, the magic circle, the temple, the stage, the screen, the tennis courts, the court of justice, etc, are all in form and function playgrounds, i.e. forbidden spots, isolated, hedged round, hallowed, within which special rules obtain. All are temporary worlds within the ordinary world, dedicated to the performance of an act apart.subconscious.substack.com
