The infinite game

https://www.alamut.com/subj/artiface/games/infiniteGames.html

This is a cool discussion and summary of a book about finite and infinite games. In brief, finite games are played with definite rules. Players are serious and you are either “playing” or “not playing.” Infinite games are much larger, and players can fiddle with the boundaries and the rules, players are much more playful, in a discovering mode. There can be finite games inside infinite games, but not infinite games inside finite games.

What a cool way to think about what we are doing here.
