[TIPS] Another virtual reality world

This article from TechCrunch - http://www.techcrunch.com/2007/05/17/entropia-universe-a-better-second-life/ - tells us about The Entropia Universe. http://www.entropiauniverse.com/index.var What is it? You should read the TechCrunch article, but here's what the site says about itself.

"The Entropia Universe is more than a game. The Entropia Universe is for real. Real people, real activities and a Real Cash Economy in a massive online universe.

Join people from around the globe who use the Entropia Universe currency, the PED, to develop their characters everyday on the untamed planet of Calypso. The unique and secure Real Cash Economy allows you to transfer your accumulated PED back into real world funds."

The NY Times calls it, "The buying game." I KNOW I'll pass on this one, thank you very much.

Besides, that ain't no way to raise test scores! :-)
