Sick! Sick! Sick!

I’m at that stage where I can feel the flu coming on and I’m dreading it. I just have to stay healthy until Tuesday and then my papers will be written. Just ’till Tuesday.
On another note, over at Gamasutra, there is a new article entitled, “The Psychology Behind Games” that uses Mihály Csíkszentmihályi’s notion of flow. I wish I’d thought of that.
Of course I’m just kidding. I did write (link to rtf file) about it and it was a chapter in my Master’s thesis. While it seems obvious that it should be applied to developement of games rather than just analysis, I chose not to do so since that wasn’t my interest. It is interesting to see someone take that viewpoint on it. It certainly never hurts to have someone else write about Flow. Maybe sometime the idea will catch on.
