In our last round of Lightning Talks, Nic Webb asked if Minecraft could be used to engage communities. 

Minecraft is an online 3D fantasy world where people build structures using digital blocks of glass, sand, brick and other materials. 

Could this digital collaborative experience translate to a face-to-face community? If people learn to work together in a virtual environment, would they work together in the real world?

To begin our Minecraft tests - we drafted in a couple of experts to get us started. You'll be able to read the full story on next weeks blog.
