Games as genuine scientific news

New Scientist – as proper a scientific website as you could ask for – brings news of a European emulation project called KEEP (Keeping Emulation Environments Portable). It’s going to cost over €4 million, and last 36 months. Our own University of Portsmouth is one of the participants.

It’s aim is wide: to safeguard access to all things digital – “text, sound, and image files; multimedia documents, websites, databases, videogames etc” – by developing a Emulation Access Platform which can do anything ever, probably.
