Jane McGonigal, the creator of alternate reality games I Love Bees and World Without Oil, and my colleague at Institute for the Future, has just launched a new global ARG for the 2008 Summer Olympics. The plot of the game, called The Lost Ring, revolves around a fictional Olympic sport that vanished 2,000 years and five athletes who have reappeared in the present.
