FWR Archives: Our Tiny Chat With Julian Dibbell


Julian Dibbell, author of My Tiny Life


For our third book club episode, we were joined by the author of My Tiny LifeJulian Dibbell. Julian has been writing about technology and game worlds since the early 1990s, and pioneered a form of digital ethnography that has influenced a generation of game writers and journalists. We discussed the early days of online worlds, griefers, meme theory and much more. We also pose tough questions to Julian supplied by McKenzie Wark, Leigh Alexander, and Netwurker Mez.

We will be featuring some of our favorite episodes from the First Wall Rebate days as we get our new podcast up and running. Check out the complete archives at FWRArchives.com.
