Watch Jane McGonigal on Colbert Report


3:30 AM on 02.04.2011



Game designer and researcher Jane McGonigal appeared on The Colbert Report tonight to promote her new book, Reality is Broken. In the interview, McGonigal discusses some of the potential for games when it comes to improving our lives and improving the world itself. You can watch the interview above, provided Comedy Central deems people in your part of the world worthy.

I really like Stephen Colbert, but his persona sometimes makes his interviews frustrating to watch. This one isn't too bad on that front, and McGonigal comes off as sweet and smart. Were I not already buried deep into her book, I'd probably be buying it right about now.
