A very interesting idea and one that flips many preconceptions about computer gaming on its head. Can we really resolve many of the world's problems by playing 21 billion hours of online gaming a week? Are we more optimistic and better problem solvers in the virtual world than the real world?
This is very much worth a listen and if anything will make you feel that little less guilty about running around your virtual worlds dressed as an elf. For those of you who go around the real world dressed as an elf....well there's no help for you.
