What can I say? I have a special place in my heart for games that cross genres. And for people that live the dream.
Jane McGonical doesn't know me from Adam, but I find her life and work to be fascinating.
She has a website: Avant Games. On this site, you learn that she is a lead designer for 42 Entertainment, the originators of "alternate reality games". She teaches courses in games, lectures on games, and is writing her dissertation on games. She designs games on vast scales. And she blogs. And travels. And eats cookies.
You go, girl.
