Benicia Hill Community Center Discussion:
12 November 2006 Chat Notes
We had a chat today at the Benicia Hill Community Center about how much or how little rl people bring to their sl experience. For example: Do you play "yourself" in world, or do you leave your rl self behind and inhabit a character that's very different? Do you eschew discussion of the world outside sl? And so on.

This discussion was inspired in part by this article about this study: The Unbearable Likeness of Being Digital: The Persistence of Nonverbal Social Norms in online Virtual Environments.
