In our fast moving world the news from today seems to be outdated already. Given that feeling I am happy to see some talks that have potential for the future. With the power of games we might be able to arise awareness for pressing problems of the world and we might change the world. See Jane McGonigal in her the fabolous TED Talk Gaming can make a better world. Even if it is almost a year old what she tells us is still up-to-date, I guess. The announcement says: "Games like World of Warcraft give players the means to save worlds, and incentive to learn the habits of heroes. What if we could harness this gamer power to solve real-world problems? Jane McGonigal says we can, and explains how."
