Cow Clicker

Here's a very interesting article about Ian Bogost. Quick synopsis: Bogost created a game called "Cow Clicker" for Facebook in order to critique social games like Farmville. A lot of people were in on the joke but a lot of other people started playing it seriously. Meanwhile, other games he created weren't getting the attention that Cow Clicker was.

I remember hearing about this a month or so ago. Seems like Bogost "raptured" all of the cows last month, so there's just an empty hole to click on. Or course, half of the comments on the Cow Clicker Facebook page are people who think it's pointless to click now that the cows are gone.

Interesting article... But doesn't the existence of the "Poke" button on Facebook kinda make cow clicking a redundant "joke?"
