In The Media

I got interviewed live on radio recently - an NPR station based in Seattle. You can see the program notes here. The program is available on their site as a RealAudio stream and a MP3 stream. They were in the middle of a pledge drive so there's a lot of fund-raising talk before the show actually starts on the stream. (If these links to the audio file are down, please email me to let me know.)

Greg Lamb from the Christian Science Monitor also interviewed me for an article. It was nice that he was willing to dig into deeper issues instead of being solely focused with the addiction angle like most other media coverage of MMOs.

I also just wanted to take this time to thank all of you who participate in my surveys. It's your responses that let me tell others what really goes on in these games. None of this would be possible without your help.

Great website and even greater research. In your NPR interview you mentioned a european online game site that is based on a business model of buying, selling and running an enterprise. What is the name of the game/site again?

It's called "Eve Online".
