If WoW is the new golf then Darkon is the new PTA.

What's Darkon? Well, it looks like Darkon is a full-contact medieval fantasy wargaming group. But more interestingly to non-members it's now a moving documentary that's screening at SXSW this year.

Ok, so I haven't seen it, which means my claims that it's actually moving are spurious however I'm just going off the vibe I'm getting from the must-see trailer.

"Everybody wants to be a hero."

If you're wondering what the post title means, it means that Jane rocks and therefore I get to tease my bandmate about her latest article for 1up that investigates the new jungle gym for playdates between tech entrepreneurs titled "Is World of Warcraft the New Golf?". The opening line is gold: "What server are you on? What guild? Oh yeah, me too, I heard it's a good way to schmooze."

    CW, I see where this is going. You plug them in order increase popularity of the "sport", which drive straffic to the hobbit name generator, leading to a new contract from New Line and a release from your grueling day job. Am I right?
