text=play implications


This is a call for possible implications of the Generative Game Engine, a drag-n-drop program that allows you to play any text.

+ "playing" your genetic structure: genome=play
+ dynamic play: RSS. XML feeds, constantly updaing play environments
+ playing the classics: AP Literature class=play

Please implicate away with comments!

+ Play a picture?


the link will convert any png file to ascii. Is there any media type that cannot be converted?

+ A random number generator will give you a different landscape for every tile, and/or dynamically change a tile over a determined period of time.

+ RSS/blog feed, like the Lego game that updates its continuing narrative every so often, each blog entry becomes a new chapter in the game. Adding in a Widget-like feature will make it update automatically.

+ Science=play: play the DNA structures of different animals and plants, play the periodic table, play the Theory of Relativity or Hawkings' calculations regarding Black Hole Information Loss.

+ Philosophy=play. Trying to understand Kant? See if you can play your way through his text.
