Gamers move from passive observers, "someone who doesn't even know the rules, to being a cheater, to being a writer, to being a programmer. Those are the stages our civilization has moved through in successive stages of media... My issue, is that at each stage, when we get a new medium, civilization seems to be one stage behind .. and an elite learns to actually use the thing ... Programming is bigger than the printing press, it's as big as text ... [It's important for people] to contend with the biases of digital media, to KNOW that there are such things as biases .. if we don't create a society that at least knows there's a thing called 'programming' then we will end up being the users, and worse, the used."
