A VERY interesting read, although I didn't have time to read it in its entirety.

Richard Bartle, although I have no idea who he is, is obviously a very insightful man, who understands well the mindset and pysche of people involved in online communities.

Funny quote:

Richard Bartle wrote:However, virtual worlds are not ordinary places. Game worlds in particular are places of adventure and excitement, similar to the real world but apart from it. People go there as part of a hero's journey - a means of self-discovery (shh! don't let the players know - they think it's just "to have fun").


That made me LOL in the office, resulting in various looks directed at me from my colleagues that screamed they all think I am weird.

And you know, Eric always finds the coolest articles online. He is like a real life Google.

Peace.
