“Exergaming” and “rehabtainment”

 Can an organization be forgiven for adding those words  to the lexicon? Maybe, if “The Games for Health Project” can find a way to make Farmville into exercise. 

This conference is ongoing and geared toward professionals, not teen gamers.  Starting today at the Harbor Hyatt and running through Thursday.
