Online 20/20?

The world of online gaming and I are not well acquainted, as I have very little spare time for such, but I am fascinated by them. In games like Everquest, there is an entire economy, and it spills over into the "real world:" people buy and sell goods in the game, on eBay and the like.

Now comes this book, Only A Game: Online Worlds and the Virtual Journalist Who Knew Too Much, where jounalist goes undercover in this world, only to expose the seedy underside...and get booted by the company that runs it!
