This article in Harper’s (pdf link), about (among other things) the philosophical implications of what’s beyond the final screen in Pac Man and other classic arcade games, is the best thing I’ve read all week. I’d never before realized that Pac Man models a deterministic universe — but Ms Pac Man doesn’t. (Curtsy).
Anyhow, consider this an open thread. Post whatever you like, as long as you like, with whomever you’d like. Self-linking is beautiful.
