It's plug'n'play in Studio 360
as we look at the art and science of videogames. Kurt Andersen and his guest, Slate
contributor Clive Thompson, talk about how this multi-billion dollar industry is changing the culture even for people who don't play games. We'll check out the prototype for Urban Resolve, the military's video game designed to teach soldiers how to wage urban warfare. And we'll hear about a young multimedia artist, born in the age of Atari, for whom reprogrammed old games is just another color on the palette. (Broadcast Date: January 29, 2005)
