I came across an interesting article on the CBC today about how the GPS-based scavenger hunt game Pokemon Go is transforming Prince George’s downtown.

There’s been a lot of moral panic in the media about Pokemon Go, but I think on the whole it’s a positive thing. After all, it’s an appealing way to get people outside and active, walking around and exploring their surroundings, making social connections.
