When Michael forwarded me this link on Monday, exhorting me to feature it, I was initially dismissive. Fast forward to today, however, and suddenly I'm singing a different tune. 

Here's the deal. Four guys combined their programming, art and lit skills to create an open-source version of a "lost" Nintendo game based on The Great Gatsby. It's pretty funny stuff — they've put together a back story, a manual and box art, as well as the pretty darn entertaining flash game itself. You can play it whenever you want, wherever you want — it's hosted here and playable in-browser. I predict a sizable drop in productivity this week...
