Online, Social, and Mobile: The future of the video games industry Introduction: A fundamental shift Figure 1 shows the remarkable transformation that the industry has gone through in the last 10 to 15 years. The advent of online, social and mobile gaming has opened up the gaming industry to a much wider audience beyond the traditional target group of ‘hardcore’ gamers. Traditional video games continue to thrive (note that in November 2010, Activision’s Call of Duty Black Ops grossed an impressive USD 650 million within the first 5 days of launch and Microsoft's next generation controller, Kinect, sold 25 million units within 25 days); only that they now represent a part of a larger ecosystem. We live in a world where nearly everybody plays games. We argue that it is this central shift that is leading to a radically larger pie.
Rebecca Solnit · Diary: In the Day of the Postman · LRB 29 August 2013 In or around June 1995 human character changed again. Or rather, it began to undergo a metamorphosis that is still not complete, but is profound – and troubling, not least because it is hardly noted. When I think about, say, 1995, or whenever the last moment was before most of us were on the internet and had mobile phones, it seems like a hundred years ago. Letters came once a day, predictably, in the hands of the postal carrier. News came in three flavours – radio, television, print – and at appointed hours. Some of us even had a newspaper delivered every morning.

Ariel Levy: Was Justice Served in Steubenville? One Saturday last August, a sixteen year-old girl in West Virginia did something that teen-agers do: she told her parents that she was sleeping at another girl’s house, across the Ohio River, and then, after her mother dropped her off there, she and a few friends headed into the hot summer night to a party. She brought a bottle of vodka with her, and she used it to spike a slushy that she bought at a gas station on the way to their destination, in a town called Steubenville. At the party, she met up with a sixteen-year-old named Trent Mays, a good-looking, dark-haired football player with whom she’d been flirting by text and tweet. She’d been “talking to him,” a porous term that teen-agers use to refer to a romantic relationship that is unlikely to be exclusive, and can involve spending time together or just courting through social media.
