Bruce, this is amazing material, and terrifically timely for me: I'm about to start teaching a grad course called "Discourse, Community and Power in Virtual Worlds," with a strong focus on the relationship of avatar technology to community.

This stuff's priceless - thank you!


So interesting, thanks!!

Avatars are like a funhouse of distorted mirrors that hint and some truths and hide others. My kid showed her annoyance with me (and the world) the other day by crafting the ugliest possible avatar she could, then proclaimed 'this is me!'. I feel like that some days, too. Mostly, though, I just want to be super me.
