Geeks competing to do good

Can a computer game inspire its players to do good deeds? A Montreal entrepreneur thinks so, and he has the backing of prestigious Internet geeks. The game is Akoha.com, the latest creation of Austin Hill, founder of the failed online privacy firm ZeroKnowledge, which successfully reincarnated as Radialpoint.
The game takes the pay-it-forward idea of spreading acts of kindness and gives it a competitive edge: players vie over who is the most benevolent.
