But Will They Get Out To Vote?
Political commentary hidden inside GTA IV. It's crude, overlong, and only funny in parts.

"The Macintosh is the first computer interface worth criticizing." Alan Kay*
* I've seen this quotation in various forms in a lot of places, but don't have a definitive source, so it's certainly paraphrased and may well be apocryphal.
** This book rates only two stars on Amazon.com while quite mediocre novels often score better. One legitimate criticism of the book is that it really doesn't offer any recipes for good design, merely ways of criticizing failed design and (less often) appreciating good design. It's quite clear based on twenty odd years of no-one else managing to provide such recipes (beyond a few useful lists of heuristics) that this is really hard, if not impossible. In any event, I think this book is utterly brilliant, but it won't tell you how to be a great designer.
