Serious game: inside the Haiti earthquake response

I know that many of us are struggling with doing things online that are educational AND interesting. I love so called "serious games" for that purpose, but of course they take a long time to produce and are anything but cheap. Which is why I'd like to share an example with you.

A camera team that was working with the Red Cross while I was in Haiti just created a serious game that allows players to take on the role of a journalist, aidworker or survivor and I think it's really impressive. 

I wrote a quick review on my blog: http://sm4good.com/2011/01/10/game-haiti-earthquake-response/
