Virtually Real December 7, 2005

Is the physical world giving way to a better, more flexible virtual world? Or is it just like the promise of the paperless office?

For more information about virtual economies, see this Cyber India Online Limited article, or read Edward Castronova’s paper on the subject.

I also reference a couple of books: Snow Crash and Synthetic Worlds: The Business and Culture of Online Games.
