well, i've never been very successful with blogs and blogging. but i do tend to spend quite a bit of time thinking about games, gaming, and gamers. in short: metagaming.

this is not theorycrafting. while i highly respect those capable of such pursuits my interests lie primarily in the social, psychological, and at times even purely scientific research that pertains to gaming. sometimes this is in obvious, straightforward ways. yet other times my thoughts become quirky as i stray a bit and wander into anthropology, physics, and paleontology.

if this kind of introspection interests you, if you find yourself wondering whether game races afffect players or players affect game races; or if you wonder what quantum psychology and hilbert vectors might have to do with the future of gaming; than this blog is for you.

i invite all sorts of comments and questions and critiques and challenges. this is movement and that means there is thinking and possibility. as my adoptive kentucky mother used to say: " a rut is just a grave with the ends knocked out," ie., if something is not changing its not living.

so let's see what happens.

I hope to see more of this. ^^

thanks. i am hoping to create a niche corner in mmorpg.com for those of us with a  more intellectual and introspective bent.

hope to see your future comments, questions, and critiques.

Intellectual and introspective bent?  Yikes, that leaves me out.  Which way to the corner for people who are shallow and easily amused?

Ken waves a hand. :-)
