    Spent the day and night playing Pokemon Go 

    It feels great. As someone who seldom goes outside, I suddenly felt as if I could connect to anyone. Anyone could be a Pokemon trainer. We saw people on SE Division street on Bikes, Skateboards, running and walking around. A few people at a restaurant were defending a gym. People who would normally be divided by social class, race and social nervousness suddenly had something to talk about.

    Pokemon go is not an augmented reality game… 

    Pokemon go is not an augmented reality game. It’s an alternate reality game.

    An alternate reality game (ARG) is an interactive networked narrative that uses the real world as a platform and uses transmedia storytelling to deliver a story that may be altered by players’ ideas or actions. (Wikipedia).
