Video gaming reached official academic status Tuesday when Electronic Arts endowed a chair at the University of Southern California for the study of interactive entertainment.PLA had a program in January on gaming: "OCLC Symposium: Gaming and the Signification for Information Literacy Learning." I believe LITA's Top Technology Trends had also included gaming (although I can't check right now because the page seems to be down). Something to keep an eye on.
