Scientific Research In Virtual Worlds

A sort of review article in Science this week by William Bainbridge on the sorts of research one can do in virtual worlds (not sure if it is full access or not). The references might be the most useful part of the paper as I did not read anything all that new (mostly introducing these virtual worlds like Second Life and WoW to a scientific audience and then listing the types of research or interesting events that occur in them). Unfortunately many of the references will not be accessible to the lay person
