Egged on by my 16-year-old daughter and 16-year-old students, I continued with my obsessive quest to master Temple Run. Yesterday, my wife dragged my daughter and me furniture shopping. Daughter and I found a very comfortable sofa and began playing. I scored 470K on Temple Run, a personal best for the week I've been playing it.
Daughter grabbed iPhone, sat for two minutes, and scored over a million. "They're here to replace us," said Jerry Seinfeld.
For their sake, I hope whatever skills are inherent in playing addictive video games become marketable. If that's the case, I see my daughter and students running the world any moment now, while we slink off in our wheelchairs.
