Free Rice

While at an interactive advertising convention, the coolest thing I learned was from a 15 year old girl.  She was a part of a discussion panel on ‘millenials’.  I think I’m a part of generation X, or perhaps Y, but these ‘youngsters’ are ‘millenials’, and they consume digital media slightly more savvy…I digress.  

She informed me (and a few thousand other listeners) about Free Rice.

This is a site in which while playing their ‘game’ for every word you get right, they donate 20 grains of rice through the UN to help end world hunger.

I’m not that smart, so I only donated a few grains…but give it a try, play a game, and help save the world.  Kinda reminds me of Heroes, except I couldn’t find the cheerleader.

So I’ve realized this blog has strayed off the perennial ‘poker’ path as of late…my apologies.  I guess I’ve just found some more interesting things recently then whether or not some monkey check raised me on the turn with nothing.  In addition, I think it is important to get away from the game from time to time, so when you return to the game, it is done in a more refreshing light.  The WSOP 2008 is just around the corner, and that’s when we’ll be getting all the poker playing in we need.
