I stumbled across a weird thing recently at work, called Second Life. It's sorta like a MMORPG, but there's no real point to it, except to interact with other "residents" of the virtual world that's created. It seems to be a huge, cult-like thing, apparently, with hundreds of thousands of people who treat this "place" like it was real-life. It seems they have everything from a real, robust economy, to politicians! I just signed up for an account, gonna take a peek & see what it's like. I'll keep ya posted on what I think of it.
