      If there was a way to design the world that discouraged selfishness, that would be a change I would make.

      A problem as long as time itself. On the positive side, selfishness engenders creativity and innovation; on the negative side, it is quite destructive for those in its path.

      I'm reminded of communism: great on paper, terrible in execution.

      Interesting guy with a very difficult job. Impressive how long he has dominated the gaming industry.

      Ran out of New Yorker Articles on my Computer.. so switched over to my phone to read the rest of this one. Good Readup Hack!

      Very interesting interview of the creator of the Super Mario series... it’s quite interesting to see the way in which he frames “interactive media” and the rise of violence in video games.
