Serious games blog
Eliane Alhadeff has published a blog about “future-making” serious games, i.e. games “that challenge us to play at building a better future”.

Although the blog needs quite some design work still – it took me some effort for instance to turn off the music (go to the July 14 post and hit the pause button) and the bloated sidebar suffers from featuritis – I have to say that the texts are cleverly written, the image selection is well-done, and above all I think it is very valuable for all of us to have somebody finally starting to create an overview of what is going on in this field.

Playful learning is definitely an area that will see major growth, and allow for innovative experience design of relevance for many different parts of society, both private and public. Hence the report we published a while back.

I can only encourage Eliane to pursue this path and try to take on a leadership role in the exploration of this field. Her blog has the potential to become a portal on the topic. To start with, she should do some more work on the categories, so that somebody interested in say games and the elderly, or games and the arts, or games and civil society can quickly find some interesting links.
