Via Raph Koster’s blog I made my way over to Venture Beat to read his contributing piece (Link) discussing CopyBot (reLink). As I said earlier, this has been a nice mess. It’s good that people outside the circle of virtual world navigators get a sense of what’s happening. That way, hopefully, when rapid manufacturing takes off and economies begin to shift and settle, there will be some better understanding of the potential problems. I’m all for people understanding the issues now because to me this isn’t a technology issue anymore, it’s a social issue.
