While working as Editor at the Netherlands Design Institute in Amsterdam, in 1998, I served on the Programming Team for the fifth  Doors of Perception  conference, on the theme of Play, along with NDI director  John Thackara , Michiel Schwarz, Jouke Kleerebezem, and Dick van Dijk. The conference was organized in sections on PLAY/TIME, GAME/PLAY, PLAY/SCHOOL, PLAY/CHANNELS, PLAY/INC and DESIGN/PLAY. Held at the historic Beurs van Berlage building in central Amsterdam, the conference featured an  international roster of speakers , many of who also contributors to, or profiled in, the book   IF/THEN: PLAY — Design Implications of New Media , which I edited and which was published to coincide with the conference.
