Sociologists and World of Warcraft

Virtual Worlds Journal Cover

Alright, so I’m a bit behind on this one – but last week Ars Technica featured entitled “Sociologists Invade World of Warcraft, see Humanity’s Future.”  The post is a bit sparse on details, but features a series of blurbs about the various academic gaming literature currently available.  I’ll be adding the books to the ‘Books’ page as I get it up and running.

Ars also gives a shout out to the Journal of Virtual Worlds Research in the article.  It’s a good source of general information, most of it around SecondLife, but there are occasionally some other tidbits of academia that expand beyond it.  It hits my gReader, so I think it’s worth a looksee.

Other than that, I’m not going to retype the article for you — click on over to Ars to check it out.
