A San Francisco-based startup named Grockit is working stealthily on what they call an MMOLG - a Massively Multiplayer Online Learning Game. What the game is and how educational it will be remains to be seen, but venture capitalists are throwing money at them. [...]
Will they succeed? I have no idea, and pretty much no one else does either, since what exactly they’re creating is still a closely held secret.
I'm going to go way out on a limb here and predict this won't succeed. Stealthy and expensive are not the future.
The nice thing about reading Andy's blog is that it is like getting a little transmission directly from 1998 every week. Gives me a nice nostalgic feeling, like watching the Pens go deep into the Stanley Cup playoffs, except not, you know, exciting.
