Spore

Really nice article by Steven Johnson on Spore and the Long Zoom. Games already match other media for popularity and income, but Spore might be a big step forward to becoming as meaningful as the best books and films.

This guy has some interesting views. Check out the “Everything Bad is Good for You” synopsis.

Update – here’s a video of a TED lecture where Will Wright demos and talks about Spore: Toys that make worlds.
