In September, I am presenting a paper entitled Virtual Worlds as a New Game Theoretic Model for International Law - the Case of Bilateral Investment Treaties at GikIII at the Oxford Internet Institute. I am really excited about this conference and the opportunity to present my paper on game theory. The program looks extremely cutting edge and I will probably be able to chat with luminaries such as John Zittrain and Ian Brown, and maybe I will even be able to finally connect in person with Nick Bostrom, who is at the Oxford Future of Humanity Institute.
About 3 years ago when Nick's work inspired me to write my paper on historical simulations, I cut out this picture of the Oxford Radcliffe Camera building from the travel section of the Globe & Mail and put it on the wall in my study next to my computer, so my exercise in visualization actually worked! (According to J.R.R. Tolkien, the building resembles Sauron's temple to Morgoth!)
