Diplomacy Island

"'The thing that carries over between the physical world and the virtual world is not particularly behavior because the spaces are so radically different,' Thomas says. 'What carries over is a notion of dispositions, and dispositions are more or less attitudes towards the real world. If you're generous in real life, you're probably generous in virtual worlds. And if you're racist in real life, you're probably racist in virtual worlds, too.'"

Melody Lutz speaks to the creators of Second Life's Diplomacy Island.
