FCLC Alumna on the Power of Play

Jane McGonigal, FCLC '99, has made the 2010 O Power List, published in the September 14 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.

The Berkeley Ph.D. and game designer knows something about the power of play, and she says "There's a misconception that people play video games to relax. Nothing could be further from the truth."

See Jane McGonigal: The power of play, and her FORDHAM Magazine profile, "Jane McGonigal: Real Gamer" (downloadable PDF).

This woman is really amazing. You should check out her TED Talk as well (http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/jane_mcgonigal_gaming_can_make_a_better_world.html). She's very engaging. And she has a book coming out too (http://www.amazon.com/Reality-Broken-Games-Better-Change/dp/1594202850/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1284998002&sr=1-1)!
