Kevin Maney, taking his cue from the book Everything Bad is Good for You, sees a lot of good in video games. I see the point about learning to find patterns, but I’m a little wary of the notion that kids who don’t play games might somehow fall behind the curve. Is anyone else a little tired of tech evangelists telling us we have to be blogging, gaming, podcasting and surfing all day because everyone else is? Isn’t that a little alienating?
On the other hand, it’s hard not to be impressed with this blind gaming whiz. Time to update Pinball Wizard.
