Notes: * I took this photo about a week ago, before Pokemon-go was released in the UK. Before I met this pair, I had never heard of the game. Curious, I rode home and spoke to the 16-year old resident of the house about the game, thinking I was on the cutting edge and had one over him. As life goes, and reality likes to teach me lessons, he was actually sitting there playing the game. His friends had it. And he walked 10 kilometres the day before, in his area, walking from gym to gym, moving up the levels. He then spent ten minutes telling me how it worked, the levels, the battlegrounds, the characters… It was all a level of depth that indicated hew was a long-time player. And that was my next mistake. He had been playing for just more than one day.
One week later and Pokemon-go is a constant social media posting. It is being heralded as the new method of interactive participation in computer gaming.
Frankly, I was thrilled to see a computer game got people to walk 10 kilometres, ride their bikes throughout the region. The more I read about the game, the more I like Pokemon Go.
