The inestimable Caleb Booker brings to our attention
that economist Ted Castronova
, author of Synthetic Worlds: The Business and Culture of Online Games,
will be speaking at the Monday, November 19th Metanomics
session in Second Life
. What's more, Mr. Castronova has requested "make me a dwarf female, high fantasy style."
While we're sure he means 'create for me a high fantasy-style dwarf female', rather than making a dwarf female utilizing a high fantasy method, we know you guys are up to the challenge. If you can do this quickly, go ahead and send your creation to Onder Skall in SL
, and if yours is chosen, you'll get special thanks during the event and on the Metaversed.com
site. And we'll put up a photo of your dwarf right here on Massively! Get crackin', troops, time's a-wastin'!
