You've been gamed!

While TV and motion picture studios are concerned that immersive persistent virtual worlds and MMORPGS are draining the lifeblood from their audiences, Clickable Culture has a story about how film-makers are taking up the cause of documenting just this phenomenon. Only last week I heard a story on Radio 4's PM show about the growth of VoIP, which was pitched at an extremely mainstream level and illustrates just how far we've come - I don't know how Little Britain will react to a film about WOW-addicted freakazoids on prime time a year from now.
