"What We Wanted To Do Is Turn Life Into A Video Game. You Should Be Rewarded For Going Out More Times Than Your Friends."

    Well, I'd lose at this game for sure, but which Internet rockstar is winning at the game of Life?  Answer below...

    Dennis CrowleyIt's Dennis Crowley of course.  And, the founder of "The New Dodgeball" aka "Foursquare" told the Observer that he thinks that we should get credited for the social work we have completed.   So comes Foursquare, the video game that rewards you for being adventurous and outgoing IRL (that's "In Real Life" of course!)  Dennis and his partner Naveen Selvaduri have introduced a beta version of the website to us nerds in the know-but we had to pinky swear promise we won't show you on here until the live one launches.

    If the online game is anything like the blacktop chalk square version out on the playground, I'm confident I will DOMINATE.  Then again, at this point, I only have 12 friends consisting of the likes of Lockhart Steele and John Carney...
