1. Some social critics are of the opinion that the spread of electronic media is destroying literacy. Standardized test scores of reading and writing have in fact gone down in recent years. Are the news media the main cause? If so, is the slow destruction of the printed media by the electronic necessarily a bad thing?

2. Some of the most devoted designers and players of games have argued that some game playing can impart many useful virtues such as cooperation with others, optimism, and feelings of leading a purposeful life. Do you agree? Do the benefits of gaming outweigh the drawbacks ?
