|BLOCK 4: ORGANISING FOR RESISTANCE|
|11:30am – 12:30pm||Introduction to Game-based, Experimental Organizations|
by Economic Space Agency (ECSA).
ECSA is formulating a grammar for expressing post-capitalist economic organizations. As part of this process, we’re offering XORG Initiative, together with Supermarkt, RYBN.org, Goldin & Senneby, YKON, Robin Hood Coop, BlockScience, m-cult, Breadchain and FRAME among others.
XORG utilizes games as a structural medium for organizations.
The different fields of game design suggest different methods for drafting organizations. For example, roleplaying games offer structures for meaningful events and forging novel social entities. Organizations can be “played into existence” with methods of playtesting, even by fragments. For example, playstorming starts from the first interactions without a full game around you. The structural variety of games is a reservoir for potential organizations. For example, the different point structures reflect most tokens used in cryptoeconomies; but they also hold many possibilities yet to be considered.
In sum: organizational design can resemble game design; organizational realization can operate as play.
