I’m sorry, but is this worthy of New Scientist? Ever since BitTorrent showed up on the scene, has anyone paying even the most remote attention not really figured that some form of a scalable P2P system wasn’t the way to go in creating a massive virtual world? I mean, the New Scientist article itself talks about the same three systems I wrote about earlier. And it’s not like they appeared overnight. If I didn’t know better, either NS’s Will Knight is aka C|Net’s John Borland, or he just seemed to rip off Mr. Borland’s article. Either way, my regard for New Scientist just slipped a notch.
