Hi chugalug community, 


I wear two main hats in my life -- I'm an open source advocate and I'm a play advocate. We need more play in this world because play is what makes life worth living. 


Along these lines, I was intrigued to stumble across this play products company located right in Chatt.

Interestingly, the most forward thinking public libraries in the country are also getting into play -- because play and creativity are best of friends - and expanded creativity ain't such a bad thing in a knowledge economy. 


Check out this public library in the Denver area that has refocused itself around play.

As we build a better world centered around open source, let's not forget to bake play 
right into the center of this new world.
