Zero! Stuart contacted me. I haven't had a chance to watch the whole thing yet, but I gave him some audio answers to some questions he provided. He asked if he could use my Polybius video in his episode here, which was of course fine.

What's interesting from the video, (I have only watched a few minutes) is that the claim the game was being used by the government for some testing initiative seems to mirror the role of Robert Preston as an intergalactic con man who installed training simulators in earth arcades masquerading as video games to find those good enough to fight their war for survival in the movie The Last Starfighter.
The lessons of history teach us - if they teach us anything - that no one learns the lessons of history.
