40 on Games

40 ON GAMES: Everything you need here to load up on knowledge and resources around serious games. According to Wikipedia (one of the links), a serious game is intended to solve a problem. This place is a treasure trove: TEDTalks from Ms. Jane McGonigal (we mentioned her book here), another Michigan State sighting, and commentary from one of Leonard’s fave Stanford professors, Dr. Byron Reeves, on why “work sucks--games are great.” Not every link is purely educational but they all attest to the transformational power of games.
