One of the post categories I'll create for this blog will be something like "Quotable Comments", or comments originally posted to other blogs that we'll pluck from the sea of words and convert into full-blown posts here with author credit.
First up, Peter S. Jenkins commenting on the Terra Nova thread about Sony's new Station Exchange player-to-player market for selling online gaming assets. Peter blasts the role-play protectionists who ideologically resist this real money market (the first of its kind to be sanctioned by a gaming company):
"Reminds me of the fall of the Soviet Union - sudden, unexpected and bloodless. What's next - freedom of speech? OMG! The thought of the ousted "magic circle" purists looking around for a new location to implement their ideology is somewhat amusing - they should follow Gorbie's example and realize the jig is up!"
Peter, I should point out, is famous for running over a Roomba vacuum with a Segway personal transporter at high speed. It happened in a hallway at last year's Accelerating Change conference and made it all the way to the Slashdot mainpage. Absolutely hysterical :-) Perhaps Peter can come and virtually recreate this geekbot mash-up (literally) at one of the SL Future Salons...
