Psychoanalyizing Personal Space in Virtual Worlds

Fascinating video over at NPR’s Bryant Park Project. Apparently the rules of personal space apply equally in virtual worlds like Second Life. First we have motions toward taxing “virtual property” in virtual worlds, and now we have psychologists devoting at least some of their (very likely taxpayer funded) time to studying the dynamics of social “virtual” interaction.

Great vid, take a look here.

Lime (at least 3 feet) out.
