US Navy playing games?
#1
Check out this link to an online game that started yesterday and lasts for 3 days. Appears to be sponsored by the US Navy in an effort to conserve energy. It also seems to have some political overtones about the current US administration. Interesting story anyway.

The Massive Multiplayer Online Wargame Leveraging the Internet (MMOWGLI) exercise, a joint effort between the Office of Naval Research (ONR), Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and Institute for the Future (IFTF), is an online game designed to crowdsource ideas and strategies that may provide insight to some of the Navy's toughest problems.
Play the Game, Change the Game

With the help of multimedia and web 2.0 technology, MMOWGLI creates a future environment where players are asked to share new ideas and collaborate with other users to earn innovation points and win the game. MMOWGLI is a web-based game which allows ONR to strategize with more players than possible in a face-to-face setting. Scaling up participation increases our aperture and enables the development of more solutions and unimagined possibilities. The game's first round, piracyMMOWGLI, launched in summer 2011 and centered around a fast-paced, geopolitical situation off the coast of Somalia. Piracy professionals are being privately invited to continue this exploration.

all good ideas are used to kill people.

the point of the exercise is to develop strategies that help save lives against aggressive combatants.

the final use is for protection... killing is a byproduct.
