Telegraphs and MMOs

Filed under: Questions — captainchunk @ 1:54 am

1. In order for the telegraph to really take off, Morse’s code was needed. When it comes to technology does the adoption rate depend more on the software than the hardware or are they both equal?

2. It is commonly accepted that people act differently online under the protection of anonymity. What would the ramifications be if there was no anonymity on the internet? Will the internet develop into a much more heavily regulated activity?

3. Should the government regulate more than it already does, what happens in MMOs? If prostitution is illegal in a state, should a MMO user be able to engage in prostitution in the virtual world if they are accessing the world from a state that does not have legalized prostitution.

  1. I’m think the idea of doing away with anonymity could have some interesting ramifications concerning discrimination. There is some research on this idea particularly in neighborhoods and online communities. If there is nowhere to hide, then you need to learn tolerance.
