The social world of
MySpace seems a far cry from gaming, but as games become more socially focused, the two are converging--Alice, at
Wonderland, muses on a MMO that would combine the social power of MySpace with MMO dynamics.
A lot of the
emerging social technologies on the Web--from social bookmarking to photo sharing--could easily translate into a game
world, and as a commenter on Alice's post points out, Second Life
already achieves some of the same goals as
the MySpace network.
With games and MySpace intertwining in new
isn't as far off as it sounds.
