The video game Pokemon Go made front-page news a few weeks back in this newspaper. Still growing in popularity, it also earned media attention from here to Boston and even Brussels. Millions of people now play a video game that actually requires you to leave your couch and go out into the real world. It encourages you to go somewhere besides home and to see and experiences new people and places.
Personally, I hope this version succeeds so wildly that it transforms the entire “virtual” world and disrupts the way we as humans interface with all things “internet” related.
I believe too many of us, like Pokemon in the game, have been “captured.”
