Beth, thank you so much for sharing your conference notes with us. I am doing educational-related research on online communities since quite a time, but I did not notice this serious games movement by now. Indeed, we discovered that within the counterstrike communities (i.e. clans) we did research upon, there were many "serious" aspects of learning, gaining social skills, etc. That was at a time when still everyone (at least in Germany) talked about this game as an evil thing producing nothing but gaming nerds and mass killers. Unfortunately, most of our publications are in german, but you will find a short english article on my website (www.joerissen.name/publ.htm), if you're interested.
