Former Cancer Patient Debuts Video Game

This is cool. The Make A Wish foundation asked this kid what he wanted, and instead of asking for something like a week at Disneyland or a cruise in the Bahamas he asked that a video game be made for cancer patients. He met with Eric Johnson (of "Loom" and "Monkey Island" fame) once a week for six months and developed a game that "is now a staple in the children's chemotherapy ward."

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
