Books, culture, fishing, and other games

Terra Nova

There's a new blog for the games out there, especially those interested in the social and economic implications of virtual worlds. It's called Terra Nova, and it features Julian Dibbell and Edward Castronova (How did he get part of his name in the blog's name?), mentioned below, along with a couple of others. Dan Hunter is an Assistant Professor of Legal Studies at Wharton, and Greg Lastowka is an intellectual property lawyer. After I got an email from Edward, annoucing the blog, I dropped in and saw there are already some comments arguing with and extending the discussion of the first posts.

If you are involved in online multi-player games, and in their wider implications on ethics, law, economics and social issues, this may well develop into the place to go. It's certainly off to a good start.
