I agree, why, with so many casual gamers, are there not more fun educational games for adults? (Yeah, the Lexica thing is right up my alley, don't care who it is aimed at. ) /ft

Seriously, my disability is not permission for you to interrogate me. I don't know you.

We cannot waste time with blame apportioning. We must seek instead to understand and change the fact that our industry is diminished by having too few women in it - for differing perspectives can only increase ideas and productivity!
