When Virtual Worlds Collide

When Virtual Worlds Collide is a great yet short article about how will Virtual Worlds evolve in a not-so-distant future.

From the article: "Because the current metaverse evolved largely out of videogames, it makes sense that it should be composed of fiefdoms - after all, you wouldn't expect a Grand Theft Auto crack dealer to drop in for a barbecue with the Sims. But there is reason to believe that the divided metaverse is merely a transitional phase, and that its component worlds will coalesce."

Of course the article is also full of shit, and it's not worthy unless you complement it by reading this after.

And, of course, this discussion only will make sense when people start seeing the difference between Virtual Worlds and Online Games.
