I second Iggy's remark - a serious journalist taking a careful look. My one reservation is can she pack all SL many facets into one article. When so many before have failed to do justice doing it right will take a lot of skill and a bit of luck. I am an optimist.

Tim Wu, the author, calls out virtual worlds as the place with the first and earliest occurrence of the censorial digital mob.

Hmm I'm not seeing a mention of virtual worlds in the NYT editorial, or am I just missing it?

The virtual worlds comment is in the linked full essay from the NYT article but I'm struggling to find the reference from there to a more in depth article.
