The MacArthur Foundation has posted a short piece on the history of Gamestar Mechanic, written by brilliant game journalist Heather Chaplin (who interviewed me recently for an NPR story on the recent Medal of Honor / Taliban controversy).

Despite the worries in my sentimental recent post about the launch of Gamestar, I’m happy to be getting my rightful props as the instigator with Jim Gee of the original idea for the game. E-Line Media, the current shepherds of the project who sometimes don’t get their due for their work on the game, get great coverage as well.
