Someone asked me today what an arcade game was. It was a first meeting with a man at my new office-space.
I launched into a historical diachronical account of how the arcade came into being, what its social implications were, how the *flaneur* was created by this architectural/business phenomenon. Then how light entertainment was added to this mix. I touched upon how the concept came into being, its cultural genesis, its roots.
I flowed. I was wordy.
Coulda just emailed him a link to: Arcade game at Wikipedia.
But that would’ve introduced someone else to my new workplace.
Most often you can see where I am using Plazes’s Where Is Olle, which brings up a Google Map of the place.
