The folks over at Wired have created an interesting game to "teach" people stories in the news, the idea is that someone can better understand the news story of the Somali pirates by understanding their motivation and by taking on the role of the pirate to better understand the economic motivations behind the Somali attacks.
Give the game a try and see if you can be a successful pirate and...see if you learn anything about the economics of being a modern day pirate.
Imagine if all complex news related information was presented in an interactive format. It might just help people understand the complex world around them just a little better.
