I believe it's Marc LeBlanc playing the game and streaming, with various others (such as Austin Grossman) commentating over Skype. Plenty of trivia, stories etc about the game and LGS in general. For example, there's a bit where they're talking about how the tiles in one of the cyberspace levels (or was it all of them?) have Conway's game of life. Great watch.

Ah, Marc LeBlanc, the man who saved more than one of my university papers by writing one of the only actually useful pieces of videogame theory in existence.

And Austin Grossman, author of You, which I have been reading recently.

Weird how that works out.

For the uninitiated amongst us, what piece of theory? Is there some introductory reading available online?

The MDA framework (PDF warning).

Many of my supervisors disliked it for not being academic enough, but perhaps that was also precisely why I found it to be the only truly useful piece of theory I came across during my studies. Unlike pretty much everything else, the MDA framework was practical. I'm not saying pure theory is useless, but as a developer, of course I favour shit that I can use directly.
