[Nettime-nl] PROJECT M - Role playing game on media, manipulation andglobalisation


Get clear! Get equipped! Get media-smart!

It's time to step into the Warriors Training for global change.

Tool up. Make sure you're no 'rebel without a clue'.
Learn about communication, media manipulation and power play.
Play Project M and determine the future of the world.

You take part in a media-driven global power struggle between corporate 
social and environmental activists and international powerblocks.
Which side will you choose?

Persuade others to pledge their support for your global leader.
How? That's up to you!

Play the game. It's a rehearsal for reality!

Game starts on June 18th, 2004
The game starts in virtual space on Friday June 18th, and culminates in
live interaction at the Festival Globalisering one week later.

What is the object of the game?
Eight global political power blocks seek to gain global power.
All eight agree that one has to be chosen to lead the world.
Only clear global leadership can adress global problems.
But who should that leader be?

Now each player seeks to win the global election.
As a participant in the game you join one of the global power blocks.

The goal is to get as many people as possible to vote for your leader
and organisation via the website or SMS, between June 18th 6pm and
June 27th 4pm. The group whose leader gets the most votes has won
the battle for global supremacy. Make sure it's yours!

How do I play?
To play you have to join one of the eight power blocks that seek to
rule the world. So, sign up for one of them, and do your utmost to 
as many people as possible that your World Leader is the one our Global
future needs - through the crafty and intelligent use of media 

Play fair or cheat.
Get a worthy leader on top or seek to dominante for the sake of it.
It's up to you.
