I guess Borgmind would have garnered too many IP lawsuits.


I think the new game is keeping our rl data out of these systems.
-100 points for being stingy about my pirivacy.

I don't know. I'm very protective of my pseudonymity. But I see potential here.

Will is one of a small pantheon of gaming gods that changed the face of video gaming (and I hope he's not reading this, because the last thing he needs is more praise).

If he decides to use his powers to advance the human condition (and not fish for lucrative product tie-ins), he has the chops to envision and execute something that could do just that. The potential of HiveMind to harness the community's collective energy, insights and resources to help resolve individual problems has the potential to do a huge amount of good in the world.

It also has potential for bad, just like any other tool. But I rather have the tool available and give people the choice of whether and how to use it, than to deny them the opportunity.

When I'm using SL or a computer game I want to be distracted from RL. When I want to play RL I log off and don't need Mr. Wright's help to play it.

I will never permit Hivemind, Facebook, SL, or anyone else to monitor my comings and goings in RL. If I wanted someone to know everything I'm doing every minute of the day, I'd sew a GPS into my underwear. My life is my business -- it's not something for other people to collect and sell to make themselves a buck from.
