Thanks for the great post. Although I haven't read it, I've been told that this is an interesting book on the subject: Exodus to the Virtual World: How Online Fun Is Changing Reality
by Edward Castronova

Here's a quote from the book:

"What about the lack of physicality?The Body does not migrate at all in the virtual worlds. But that is not important...where you are is where you are looking. Gaze is location."

Have you read Otherland? I wrote this before I read them but after reading them I couldn't believe how in depth and perceptive they are!
