sidelobe put a link in his journal yesterday about some online game called "LOST" (no relation to the TV show as far as we can tell). I'm not exactly what the point is, but it says that it's a student project of some sort. You get points when people sign up. There's a timer that counts down; if it ever reaches zero, you lose. The timer gets more time added on to it when people sign up via your invite link. And you get points when people sign up, too. In the end, when they reach 7 million players, the game is over and the person with the most points gets £500. The little graph theorist in me is a little intrigued.
