Jeremy pointed me to this: My Tiny Life: Crime and Passion in a Virtual World by Julian Dibbell (Book) in Computers & Internet is now available for FREE as a download, or you can buy it on line: “Part memoir and part ethnography, My Tiny Life is about the social life of the online, text-based virtual world LambdaMOO and my own brief encounter with it in the early ’90s. Andrew Leonard, in Salon, called it “the best book yet on the meaning of online life.””
