Boing Boing has a neat D&D add that reads, "If you're going to sit in your basement pretending to be an elf, you should at least have some friends over to help. Dungeons and Dragons: Get together. Roll some Dice. Have Fun." I am contemplating the effects - minimal - of an implication such as this, a suggestion that we move away from digital entertainment and try and begin to engage in face to face play again. Just as Meetup.com used the Internet , proverbial great divider of people, to unite them face to face I think D&D could do the same. However a call to action alone is futile. If D&D can come up with some mechanism to span the digital divide they may succeed in getting kids off of the computers and back in their parent's basements - where they belong! The saddest part of the question is, "are the social skills you learn and develop while playing D&D going to be worth a grain of salt in the workplace of the future?"
