Sandra Day O'Connor's video game

Here's an interesting article from the New York Times: Sandra Day O'Connor's plan for Joystick Justice.

A video game is being developed in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin's James Gee, and will be available for free on the internet next year. The first episode of the game will center around the First Amendment, specifically on a controversial T-shirt a student wears to school (sound familiar?). Players of the game will assume various roles in the court proceedings.

O'Connor was speaking at the Games for Change conference in New York. She is also involved in Arizona State University's Our Courts website.

I can't wait to see it!
