Just spent an hour and a half with a nice journalist from She was nice and very interested, but slightly pessimistic about how much space she might be permitted to use. After all I have no conclusions along the lines of: Games lead to overdeveloped thumbs. That would have been a nice headline. What can I say? "It might lead to a different way of reading." "Perhaps these media can change the way we understand causality." "No, I haven't looked at whether it's dangerous - it's fun and can be good for you." Not exactly fancy headlines.

I think that's why I am here, and not in some newspaper, chasing stories and headlines. I tend to ask: So what - and then try to find out.
