        Subject: Human IT 9.3 - Games and action

Dear all,

(usual apologies)

A new issue of Human IT is now available at

This is the first of two consecutive issues on the theme of "Games and
action", with Jonas Linderoth (Univ. of Gothenburg) acting as guest
editor. Following a 2007 conference on computer games and action held in
Gothenburg and a subsequent call for papers, Human IT received such a
large amount of fine, reviewed and accepted articles that we decided to
split the material in two issues. Enjoy your reading!
