On the bookshelf

With the increasing popularity of Second Life and the massive attention being given to the Serious Games Initiative, I find myself increasingly interested in the work of people like UW-Madison’s David Williamson Shaffer and James Paul Gee. I’m way behind the curve in this world, but I’m making amends. I’ve pre-ordered a copy of David’s forthcoming book, How Computer Games Help Children Learn. I’m also reading two Henry Jenkins titles, Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide,” and “Fans, Bloggers, and Gamers: Essays on Participatory Culture.”
