Slender-man is a game created in July of 2012 based on the legend of the Slender-man, who is known to only be seen by children just before he reaches out and grabs them. You see, the point of the game is to wander around in the woods in utter darkness aside from the dim light shone from your flashlight, trying to find 8 manuscripts or a€?pages.a€? The a€?pagesa€? look like post- it notes and have random sentences and sayings scrawled across them. On July 5th, the game started out as a free downloadable computer game that you can get here and I was happy to see that the game was released as an app on September 27th.
The controls are hard to get used to initially, because the gamer basically needs to use his or her two thumbs to navigate through the woods with each joystick. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Some people will rely on printed Facebook invites and directions from BurnerMap to find their friends, but these days, workable printers only exist in offices with PCs. There’s a couple of useful devices out there that connecting users offline, including Bluetooth-powered goTenna, but with mesh networking, all you need is your phone.
It’s the same platform that Apple’s AirDrop uses to share files directly via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, without the need for any intermediary devices.
App developer Open Garden has taken advantage of this new technology by building a proof-of-concept chat app for iOS and it’s about to bring mesh networking to the masses. I’ll be using this technology and I hope you do, too because mesh networks grow stronger and more useful as more people join them. In the typical client-server networking apps most of us use, communications are centralized. But out on the playa at Burning Man, there is no pervasive, reliable, centralized network to collect and redistribute our messages. With FireChat, or with other similar mesh apps like The Serval Mesh, installed (do it before you come to Burning Man, because, you know, no internet access, right?), my device connects with all other “meshed” devices within my Bluetooth range (about 70 meters)… and they connect with all the similarly enabled devices within their range. If there’s a high enough density of devices using mesh networks on the playa, my message gets passed along from device to device to device (each serving as a node in the network) until it finds its way to my friend a half mile away over in Camp Contact. Now, I know some Burning Man traditionalists are going to say this is mainstreaming the Burning Man experience. And wouldn’t you know, mesh networking is actually quite consistent with the principles of Burning Man. Radically Inclusive: Anyone can join, no password needed, no sign-up required, all are welcome.


Gifting: You’re giving freely of your device’s connectivity to everyone else in the mesh, simply by being on the playa. Ryan Matzner is the Director of Strategy at Fueled, a mobile design and development shop based in NYC and London. The country is living up to its melting pot reputation as American faces become less homogenous and more diverse, a phenomenon that renowned photographer and portrait artist Martin Schoeller captured for the October 125th anniversary issue of National Geographic magazine. The images, which are coupled with the individual's "self ID" and the box he or she checked to indicate race as specified on the 2000 and 2010 census, are a striking reminder of Americans' complex cultural and racial origins. Schoeller's photographs capture "the changing face of America," a trend that is no doubt picking up speed with the increase of both interracial marriages and the births of biracial babies.
On playgrounds and college campuses, you’ll find such homespun terms as Blackanese, Filatino, Chicanese, and Korgentinian. Tracey Williams Bautista says her seven-year-old son, Yoel Chac Bautista, identifies himself as black when he’s with her, his African-American parent. This game has developed a cult following of teens and tweens everywhere and in particular, at my library. You must collect all 8 before the Slender-man gets you; if you fail to do so, you lose the game and the haunting image of the thin Slender-man appears on the screen. One is used as a directional to go forward and backwards and the other is used to turn side to side. And while I look forward to leaving the mainstream grid to frolic with fellow creative creatures, I’m not so keen on what I understand is a common struggle at Burning Man: losing track of your friends on the playa.
And once you’ve left that Walmart in Reno and all other traces of civilization behind, you’re on the playa with no cell coverage and only limited oases of Wi-Fi, meaning you can’t rely on texting to find your mates. Apple’s Multipeer Connectivity Framework gave developers a platform on which to create mesh networking applications. The team also offers an Android version, which relies on Open Garden’s own mesh networking platform.
When you join the mesh network, you will make my experience better (thanks), and vice versa (you’re welcome).
Even if I’m sitting right next to you on the couch, if I send you a text or file it will probably travel miles away to a server outside Atlanta, Des Moines, or Portland, before returning to our building and eventually making it to your device.
There’s no server needed, no weighty infrastructure, just all us individuals and our connected devices, weaving together the community one packet at a time. That searching all afternoon for your friends, leaving old school handwritten notes or messages in a bottle, and trusting to synchronicity is all part of the experience.


But when I’m having that mind-blowing experience, I want to send out a call to my friends to come experience it with me… immediately!
The more we connect, the stronger the mesh will get, and the more useful the network will be for all of us. So, consider these tips and download some apps before you drop out of civilization and, when you arrive on the playa, join me on the network.

Census presented the question of race differently, allowing respondents the option of selecting more than one racial category, with nearly 7 million Americans identifying as members of two or more races.
When Joshua Ahsoak, 34, attended college, his heritage of Inupiat (Eskimo) and midwestern Jewish earned him the moniker Juskimo, a term he still uses to describe himself (a practicing Jew who breaks kosher dietary laws not for bacon but for walrus and seal meat). I was first introduced to this game over the summer when I noticed a group of kids playing it on a computer. Even though the game is free to download online, charging a dollar for the app seems fair and affordable for teens. The app, called FireChat, and others like it, is the tool for finding your friends at Burning Man. Traditionalists believe that there’s a principle of immediacy to be upheld, and that it’s important to directly experience what’s right there in front of you. The 2010 census included changes to more clearly distinguish Hispanic ethnicity as not being a race, with data revealing that whites would no longer be the majority in the country by 2043. I know that teens will want to purchase it for their iPods and mobile devices for playing while on the go.
The user interface is very similar to the computer game and everything looks basically the same. As the screen went fuzzy, an image of a thin man’s face appeared on the blinking monitor. I would recommend this game to teens and young adult librarians; it’s just the right amount of scary and just in time for Halloween!
