Data Teaser

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

April will be a busy and exciting month, full of conferences and airports!  The latest EVE data has been analyzed (teaser: players self-reported far more transactional leadership behavior within the game than transformational leadership behavior) and I’ll present/co-present findings from a few more studies at SIOP and WPA.  I expect to post summaries by the end of the April.

EVE winners announced

The winners of my EVE Online study have all been announced!

Thommas Molina, Valrox, & Yoshimuri Torban were on the team that had the highest per person ore yield in the experimental session.  They split 150 million isk (the EVE Online currency)

War chylde and Aero089 each received 15 million isk in the individual lottery drawing of people who completed the pretest.

Mester Dominux, Alekseyev Karrde, croxis, & Mister Murphy split 60 million isk as the winners of the team lottery drawing (teams that completed the entire study).

Congratulations to these participants and a big thanks to those who didn’t win but still provided significant contributions by participating!

Ars Technica is running an article on the massive amount of data collected from Everquest 2 (60 TB).  It’s an interesting read, if not without some major privacy concerns.
