Annotation: This post may also pertain heavily to Jenkins’ Spreadability article, but I believe it goes beyond that.  It is a great example of digital curation within the online community, as it shows ways in which contributors, both amateur and professional, make efforts to expose new concepts and artistic forms, as well as the communities and memes built around these media forms.  By creating this Zerg Rush game, Google was able to “tell a story using new, creative methods” as we discussed in class.  They helped curate a better understanding of the gaming community and how unique of an experience it can be to belong to such a community for the uninitiated masses.
