Bill Dembski, the Newton of Information Theory, has announced a new flash game on his site, Panda-monium. It's a sort of Space Invaders-like game, where you shuffle a tank back and forth, firing upwards at—you guessed it—panda bears falling out of the sky.
It's interesting because:
- It's slick and flashy,
- but it's also shallow and tedious,
- and the pandas always eventually win.
There's a metaphor there somewhere.
