«Is there anything more plausible than a second hand? And yet it takes only the smallest pleasure or pain to teach us time's malleability.

«Commentators frequently blame MMORPGs for an increasing sense of isolation modern life. But virtual worlds are less a cause of that isolation than a response to it.

It gives us back community, a feeling of competence, and a sense of being an important person whom people depend on.»
