Wakka Wakka Doo Doo Yeah!

I spotted a link to PacManhattan over at SimpleBits, and was immediately stunned.  I mean, sure, it’s like an episode of “When Geeks Go Crazy,” what with the use of cellular and WiFi communications to update player positions, and the Web-based arcade view of a live game in progress, but think about it.  These people are running around entire blocks of New York City just to play a live-action version of a 1980’s video game.  They’re actually getting exercise.  They won’t just be toning their wrists; this is a total-body workout.  That’s so not geeky.

Can’t you just hear the guy playing PacMan trying to cross the street?  “Hey!  I’m wakka wakka wakkin’ here!”

    A few things

    Trying to name my posts after song titles or lyrics is too hard.
    Full moons rule.
    What these guys do also rules. That link was discovered from Eric Meyer’s page
    “Ocean Cloud” off the new album may very well beat out the site’s nam…
