Game Grammar

Just read

I don't see myself applying this sort of technology anytime soon, but I'm glad that somebody out there is thinking it through. Every shared symbol system smooths* communication; the question is, will there be anybody with whom to communicate in this language? (Such concerns haven't stopped my sister from devoting her university career to learning Latin...)

I do hope that in the future, hordes of game designers can communicate entire systems and mechanics in a shared language.
