Everquest documentary

Researching Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games leads me to a lot of interesting finds. I sent this documentary to a friend of mine telling him that it would make him laugh, because I was in hysterics. He acutely pointed out to me that “laughing at nerds doesn’t necessarily release you from the label!”. Quite right! Honestly, though, I consider myself a “wannabe nerd”. Who knows! Maybe I’m on the right track to becoming one! :-)
