Games in education was mentioned in the round up and was also a topic on the axe factor a few months ago, so I am not going to get into it here other than to say that there is huge potential for games and game like tools to be used in all aspects of education.

I was a developer for military simulators a few years ago and suffice to say there is a huge market for simulated training of soldiring skills. It is way cheaper to train procedures on simulators then using live equipment, especially troubleshooting procedures and basic scenarios.

These things are not games per se and are not commercial products, but there are big markets outside games as entertainment in the business sphere.

My life as a Sim (part 3)

So many things have happened since our last talk. I don't even know where to start. Well, maybe i should start with the good news...

Me and Maaike are expecting a baby. Remco Jr. is going to have a little brother or sister. I think it will motivate him to do better a little bit. He hasn't been doing too well at school.
