About Serious Games

Serious games (SGs) or persuasive games are computer and video games used as persuasion technology or educational technology. They can be similar to educational games, but are often intended for an audience outside of primary or secondary education. Serious games can be of any genre and many of them can be considered a kind of edutainment.

Will web 2.5 be a real time 'world wide talk show' powered by xmpp text/live video streams and accessed on tablet based netbooks and phones ?

Scoble talks about live web text and video streams:

RSS is just not real time enough any more ! Web 2.0 was about updates every half hour, will web 2.5 be about second to second updates ?

The problem is that our blogs don’t participate in the real-time web. They publish via RSS. RSS is not real time. RSS only publishes when a service like Google Reader asks for it. It has no way to wave its hand and tell your reader “hey, there’s something new here for you to get.” So, most RSS aggregators just visit on a regular basis, looking every few minutes to see whether something new has shown up.

For blogs that’s just fine. After all, most blogs take a few minutes to a few hours to write and it won’t kill you if you don’t read my words here for 20 minutes or longer.

But there’s a new expectation that we’re having thanks to Twitter. We want everything now in real time. I want to see everything that was published now and respond to it now and I want to have conversations about all that in real time.
This works on Twitter and friendfeed, which were built on real-time principles (er, messaging principles) rather than Web principles.


FriendFeed says ‘SUP to some new services:
