Came across this very interesting article this morning:
It talks about virtual worlds, and more specifically how they actually have real economies.
“[EverQuest] was the seventy-seventh richest country in the world. And it didn't even exist.”
Quite amazing actually; people trade virtual goods in the real world and some people actually make their living from it. I'm downloading There.com just to have a look what all the fuss is about - although, I know I don't have time to play the game properly... unless I get hooked of course ;)
