Bridging the real and the virtual world

In this TED Video Jane McGonigal makes the case of computer games ability to have profound impact on the real world. It is called “Gaming can make a better world” and I believe it! She was also on the Colbert show February 3rd, 2011 where I first got to here about her(!).

Here is the links to her website:

Here is the two games mentioned in the talk:

EVOKE (2010). A crash course in changing the world.

WORLD WITHOUT OIL (2007). Play it — before you live it.
