"Design is about constraining people... Games are interesting, because they're only partly in control -- because they're about teaching you how to think."
In this free GDC Vault video from GDC Online 2011, Ultima Online lead designer and Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided creative director Raph Koster shares how developers can take control of social media and avoid it taking control of them in the talk 'It's All Games Now! How Games and Social Media are Converging.'

For more with Koster, he discusses further blending games with social media in this follow-up interview.

Additionally, GDC Vault has made free a postmortem on Ultima Online featuring Koster alongside Starr Long and Rich Vogel.

About the GDC Vault

In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent GDC events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers. Those who purchased All Access passes to events like GDC, GDC Europe, and GDC Online already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscription Beta via a GDC Vault inquiry form.

Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company. More information on this option is available via an online demonstration, and interested parties can send an email to Gillian Crowley. In addition, current subscribers with access issues can contact GDC Vault admins.

Be sure to keep an eye on GDC Vault for even more new content, as GDC organizers will also archive videos, audio, and slides from other events like GDC China and GDC 2013. To stay abreast of all the latest updates to GDC Vault, be sure to check out the news feed on the official GDC website, or subscribe to updates via Twitter, Facebook, or RSS.
