Welcome to The Daedalus Project

The Daedalus Project began about 4 years ago while I was still working in Chicago and just about to transition to grad school at Stanford. Now, 4 years later, I'm about 3 months away from finishing my dissertation. I'd like to thank those of you who have participated in this study. The Daedalus Project would not be possible without you.

How You Can Help:

- Post a message on your community forum or message board about the findings.
- Create a link to "The Daedalus Project":
- Add a link to The Daedalus Project in your forum signature.

As usual, your comments and feedback are most welcome. Any questions should be directed to

Thanks for all your work over the years. I hope this project continues after your dissertation. It's amazing how much depth you've added to the understanding of MMOs.

ah... i needed to do a speech on 'Why gaming is addictive' to my class.. and i googled my way and ended up here. Really nice findings and work u have done.

still finding the 'why' factor. usually what i can find online is the after effects & solving. Hardly any on the 'causes' of addiction
