Interesting talk on TED.com about how games like World of Warcraft give players the means to save worlds, and incentive to learn the habits of heroes. What if we could harness this gamer power to solve real-world problems? Jane McGonigal says we can, and explains how.

She has an online game where people participate and solve real-life problems like how to live in a world without oil, an alternate reality gaming project where thousands of people have joined to...
creatively answer the questions that face the world's dependency on polluting fossil fuels and solve the problems of the limited supplies of these.

Her paradigm changing ideas are newsworthy, insightful and creative. It's really is an out of the box solution to real world issues.
