The Eye of Man Hath Not Heard; the Ear of Man Hath Not Seen

Virtualpolitik pal Ian Bogost was on NPR today in "Video Game Makers Favor Diversion over Depth."

I still find the idea of discussing such a visual, hands-on medium on the radio amusing, but Bogost 's dulcet tones included some good sound bites, and the broadcast didn't romanticize dreary educational games either. Julian Bleecker had some more of his reactions as a pedagogue here.

Update: Bogost is also in the news this week making comments about campus hysteria involving mixed-reality games that are played on college campuses with toy guns.
