SANU – A NOT SO HIDDEN DOLLARBIE

From the notecard:

“I’ve got a sexy new little spot at a mall a wonderful friend has opened up (quick! There are still spaces free!) and I put out a dollarbie to celebrate. It is not so difficultly hidden somewhere near or around my space in a green gift box with pink ribbons tied around it. The item? A pretty pair of earrings in dark silver and peacock blue!”

OTHER ITEMS:

THE ETHICS OF SOCIAL GAMES AND VIRTUAL GOODS: A BIGGER PICTURE

Vili Lehdonvirta – Virtual Economy Research Network
“But some game industry veterans are now raising concerns about the ethicality of the social game paradigm (Soren Johnson has a good summary, check out the comments, too). Much of the concern relates to the idea that social games “exploit psychological flaws in the human brain” to keep users engaged and paying for comparatively simple game content. Sour grapes or valid concerns?”
