TECH TUESDAY: ONLINE GAMING

Do you play online games? It was fascinating to read about a MMORPG called Project Entropia. Here is an excerpt from the article, Worlds without end.

Land and other in-game property has been sold for huge sums: one "Project Entropia" player paid $26,500 for an island in the game's virtual world last year, and has already made his money back by selling hunting and mining rights to other players. Trade in virtual items is now worth more than $100m each year. (Economist.com, 12/14/05.)
