Theory of systemless gaming

John Hughes is credited with writing one of the first systemless games in Australia - Memory (which is discussed in the essay below).

Honestly, I'm not sure how to introduce this one.  I reckon it's one of the pivotal discussions of roleplaying?  I've heard anecdotally it was one of the inspirations for the forge (an indie roleyplaying discussion forum)? 

How about - This is a bloody good essay and I suggest you read it.

[UPDATE] John has updated his essay and is hosting it over on his website.  You can get it from the source now :)
