What if you could play a game of Friends? Or The Wire? What would that be like? We saw Duncan at Playful 09 and were instantly hooked by his idea that dramatic storytelling and video games could merge in a new interactive concept called "Fictive Worlds". Duncan also shares his experience of developing the first PMOG (Passively Multiplayer Online Game), The Nethernet, and learning to program in COBOL (without a computer!) You should most certainly add him on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Leila reports from Grid ref TQ2191, an overgrown section of motorway near the end of the M1; Dave mops up some unlikely Valentine's Day bargains (and answers a listener's question - send them in via #askdavegreen on Twitter); we update you on our fridge sounds appeal (the audio equivalent of Roo's Flickr group) - and lots more.
