"I kind of think if Judge Scalia went into Second Life, he would not have as much fun."

I cannot speak for his experience, but Scalia dive-bombed by flying e-weenies or griefed with fireballs would make my century, in either life.

Thank you for sharing this with someone who was not around then. I wonder how many sitting judges, or elected officials, have ever taken the time to experience technology like Judge Posner did.

I often wonder if some of the legislation and judicial rulings we see put forward today, often ill conceived at best and totally absurd at worse, are being created by people who have no real understanding of what they are talking about. It is like watching someone trying to fit a legislative round peg in a technological square hole, and then scratching their head because the thing still leaks.
