Once again, Terra Nova saves my life!

Thanks to Terra Nova, my thoughts and frustrations have been cleared! For a long time now, I’ve been trying to figure out a way to look at game design as a political force within virtual worlds! Sure, Julian Dibbel and others (see list of papers) have helped, but my it wasn’t until I read James Grimmelmann’s ‘Virtual Power Politics’ that things just suddenly became clearer about what the hell I’m spending all those hours in TSO for!
Suddenly Klabbers, Zimmerman, Turkle, Taylor, Castronova, Jenkins (basically anyone you can find on the right hand side of the blog, are connecting in my mind! And I can’t wait to start writing my thesis!!! Finally I can inform my advisor of some progress!
Want to write more, but need to dash! Very important football match today!!! ;))
But thank you Terra Nova! Don’t know how I would survive without you!!!
