This New Yorker article about the designer of the Sim games and the forthcoming Spore was the coolest thing I've read in some time. Before he started game design he was involved in illegal cross country road races (motto: we have to drive through the south because that's where I know how to talk to cops) and set a few records.

The game part of the article is summarized nicely on kottke.org, but the whole article is worth reading. It raises the point that his games steer people in the opposite direction of the tactile world of Montessori and general tinkering that the designer himself grew up in, but he doesn't think game players will look like the above picture in the future.
