Welcome to my blog! Or rather, my collection of stories and observations throughout my time spent in online virtual worlds. This is first and foremost a method of collecting all of my thoughts, ideas, and data into one place, and have made it openly viewable to the public so they too can read about my adventures, as well as provide feedback and their own insights. Why? Because that is the beauty of the virtual. We are all able to freely share with one another our ideas, thoughts, and random cat pictures from anywhere in the world as we unite in one virtual setting or another. This is what makes the study of the digital so thrilling, ways in which we as humans are able to interact together as more an more of us venture out into these virtual worlds, not quite sure of what we’ll find. By recording and documents these interactions, we can better understand how virtual worlds are used, the purposes they serve, and perhaps most importantly of all, what it means to be human.
