Just For Fun:
A Couple of Games and Playful Things

RKC 100
3:15 pm

Ramsey Nasser

Ramsey Nasser is a computer scientist, game designer, and educator based in Brooklyn. His work explores issues of justice in computing and the role of human culture in coding. He researches programming languages by building tools to make computation more expressive and implementing projects that question the basic assumptions we make about code itself. His games playfully push people out of their comfort zones, and are often built using experimental tools of his design. Ramsey is a former Eyebeam fellow and a professor at schools around New York. When he is not reasoning about abstract unintuitive machines, he goes on long motorcycle trips.
