Raph Koster is a MMO designer extraordinarie and the founder of Metaplace, a game-changing startup in the online games space. Raph has an excellent blog that is definitely worth following if you even remotely interested in what makes online social places (games, virtual worlds, social networks) tick. Most recently Raph has come out with two powerhouse posts on improving socializing. They are pure gold:

Ways to make your virtual space more social

Ways to make your social space more gamey

Meanwhile Amy Jo Kim recently gave speeches on Funware at Google and at Dave McClure’s Startup2Startup evening. I’m a huge fan of her work and it was superb to finally see the video recording of her presentation. She has been sharing her slides, but I believe this is the first time the presentation is available in video. Another pure gold post:
