Google App Engine. We've analyzed it here on ReadWriteWeb. Now it's your turn to have your say. We've created, via a new app from Impact Games, an interactive game that will let you model Google App Engine's impact in the marketplace. You can play the game below:There has been a lot of talk on the web over the last few days about
How it works: in this particular game you can choose to play the role of any of 4 different players: Google, Amazon, Microsoft, a Market Analyst. Then you can either predict what will happen, or voice your opinion about what should happen. Or both. If for example you choose to play as Google, you can predict that Google will open up the languages beyond Python. If you voice an opinion, you are guided by several "advisors" - in this case we have RWW, CNET and Dave Winer. The difference between predicting and voicing an opinion is that you may not necessarily agree with what you predict Google will do, so you can then cast your opinion about what you think Google ought to do!
This is the first in a series of games that we'll run over the next few months on ReadWriteWeb. If you have ideas for other games, please let us know in the comments below.
