    The meetup was okay, but I was somewhat disappointed I expected more.

    Very well put together, and a lot of fun with the fact that it covered both sides of the mix between games and education.

    Sorry to miss this. I'm a developer with PBS and the LearningMedia product (online digital resources for the classroom).

    If there are any producers of educational games here in town looking to expand the visibility of their content please don't hesitate to ping me.

      That's cool Doug! We should compare notes at some point - the stuff I do at work is proprietary atm, but I'd like to hear more, LearningMedia looks pretty awesome :D

      I LOVE this game and how it educates through real world decision and consequence: http://playspent.org/­
