Personally I think the game logic is part of what makes all the Web 2.0 stuff so addictive for a lot of people. Everything page has tons of metrics tied to it: likes, comments, diggs, views, etc. Just try to look at one video on Youtube without just for a second thinking about all the numbers around it. The whole thing is one big "high score" contest.

The last thing that our government and business leaders should want, is a radicalized IT sector.

It's somewhat like ignoring the vegetable drawer of your fridge for a year, then opening it to find a bunch of very grateful sentient tomatoes busily working on their third opera.

Using the artificer class and some spells from the Book of Vile Darkness, we can get to true infinities at a level of 5, perhaps less. I do not think it ends at aleph-null infinities, either. Do you see the law in it? Do you see the strange coincidental multiplicative power of business in it?

Oh, yeah, and protip: if you feel like you need to cook something right after playing God Of War, just relax. Give it a minute.
