Assignment #147

Virtual Worlds

One thing I haven’t touched much in this email is virtual worlds. We hit Second Life a little back in Assignment #58, my kid plays with Runescape, and one of our techs and her husband do World of Warcraft which I guess is very popular. Second Life has evidently been losing its popularity since they won’t let people gamble any more. Anyway, here’s an article on what the author calls “casual” virtual worlds.

Here’s the Wikipedia article on the whole idea:

And this guy’s blog is devoted to rating bars in the UK with rating the virtual bars as well.

I’m not sure I can handle a virtual world. I can barely handle the real one.

Play!!

Hello!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may commense to get income with a sum that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'll be glad to let you know my secrets at my blog.
