Twitch Plays Pokemon
I figured I should at least do a mini post here so I can look back on this oddity later. When Twitch Plays Pokemon fist appeared on my Twitter feed I didnt give it much thought - but when I heard what it actually was I was intrigued. I have dropped in several times over the week and am genuinely amazed that this much progress has been made. While I have seen bits and pieces going on I have yet to see anything actually usuful done. Just now Red lost a battle, sigh.
The entire concept of having a huge swarm of people all using the controls for this old-school 16-bit game at the same time is fascinating to watch. Insanely frustrating, but fascinating none the less. I didnt feel as though my contributions to the controlling were having any useful effect :-)
