Christy Dena is one of the most knowledgeable people I know working in the cross-media arena. Having studied the topic for years, she is at the forefront of a new emerging form of entertainment. Christy has written a comprehensive essay on the topic for the Feb 2008 issue (vol 14, no 1) of Convergence: The International Journal of Research into New Media Technologies (which is available in hardcopy and online). In addition she has created an amazing online augmentation to the article – a free minisite that details a number of interesting ARG (alternate reality games) in great detail. Well worth the visit for anyone looking for an overview.
