Interview With Mark Long, Gamer and Storyteller (Video)

Mark Long has a career you can't categorize -- from U.S. Army to the NY Times bestsellers list, video game creation to laboratory R&D -- he is a man who brings a brilliant imagination to science.

We sat down to talk about the intersection of gaming and storytelling. Gamers build entire worlds first, stories second. But how the two areas are fusing with the rise of technology is what excites him for the future. I'm excited for what he will bring all of ours.
