Death of a Cultural Icon

It doesn’t matter which social subgrouping you belong to it is undeniable that Gary Gygax has had a huge influence on our modern day culture.  He has passed away but the influence he has had on modern culture lives on.  I wonder what the internet would have looked like without the contribution he made to the lives of so many all the way back in 1974.

    And anyway, some of my friends who had trouble with math wouldn’t have gotten better.
    It was great to do something we liked and actually learn.
    Go figure.

  4. Just think of the social skills people managed to learn when otherwise they would have had little social interaction. It also brought people from different cultural backgrounds together.
