It's probably rather common to choose to shadow Jane McGonigal, as I'm sure many gamers have found their way to this unique new "game." But her vision is so aligned with my own, for me, it seemed there was no more logical choice. So I followed her on Twitter, and have been ravenously reading everything I can find about this radical idea of gamers being heroes in the REAL world! I'm not only intrigued....I'm inspired and excited and my mind is a flurry with ideas!
I started a blog
over on Blogger to keep track of my journey, and I've had some ideas about things that can actually be done with gamers that I "see" in games each day. If any of you reading this are gamers, particularly in MMOs, I would love it if you would come comment on my blog with your own ideas about what we, as gamers, might be able to do to affect the REAL persistent world while we're affecting the persistent online worlds.
I only have one post up right now, but I would love to hear anyone else's ideas on what they would like for me to research or write on, and what ideas anyone else might have, as well, for things that can be done that would be positive, life changing, and extraordinary. I intend to pursue this with a great dose of gaming fervor! :)
