Clever essay (and hysterical flow chart) in the Sunday New York Times. Adam Rogers uses the recent death of Dungeons and Dragons creator Gary Gygax to follow the continuum from role-playing games to web page hits. If you grew up playing D&D in its heyday (early 1980s) like I did, you'll really appreciate it - if not, a good opportunity to learn some cultural history.

I'm betting lots of us were stuck in the lower left corner, wondering
how the flow broke down.
But great all the same - and nerdily heartwarming :)
