Gaming is coming of age......

I have been playing games since I was a little boy living on Kermit Avenye in Buffalo, New York. I am convinced that my love of history and learning can be directly connected to all of the historical simulation games that I have played and will continue to play until I die. They truly fired my imagination in ways that school seldom did. A wonderful article appeared in the Washington Post on January 4, 2009 focusing on the emergence of simulation gaming in area schools. Click here and take a look.

Interesting Article about the Net, Facism, and Obama

"Can Obama's plan for universal broadband turn the recession into a political nightmare resembling the 1930s? Yes, it can, writes the author of the controversial book, The Cult of the Amateur."

As I contemplated the irony of the declaration of a state of emergency for the District of Columbia as we prepare for the inauguration of Barak Obama I found this article which made me step back and wonder. Scary thoughts. Give it a read.

Gogol Bordello

Tonight is the nigth. I am so excited about Gogol Bordello. Paddy, the boys and I are going to have a night of it at the 930 Club. I have done very little partying on this break and this will be a wild night.
