New media, old metaphors

After a weekend in which British newspapers have been fairly free with the “internet will make us all dumb by reducing attention spans” lament, slightly encouraging to find Wired news featuring a video game which is a) about climate change – in some sense of “about” and b) apparently rather good.

I keep an eye out for novels on climate change (a few decent ones, more on the way) and movies (er, not yet). But as a non-games player – where do people find the time? – this is an interesting one to hear about.

More here, prefaced by a spoiler warning. Oh, and it’s called Flower, which makes a change from Grand Theft Auto and the like.
