John Seely Brown last night in a "fireside chat" (more like a lion-side chat, as it was before the Singapore Zoo night safari), in discussion with Doug Thomas of USC. Fascinating conversation about the nature of education and virtual worlds. "It's not about creativity, it's about imagination".

Also posited that the "gaming disposition" may be the most useful thing in the twentyfirst century world of work, helping people use the skills they learn in-game (or in-guild) to work with a diverse group in another organisational setting.
