Today I handed in the final manuscript of my PhD thesis, which is called Power Games: Rules and Roles in Second Life, to the printer's. 226 pages. I've really enjoyed doing research for it, talking about it, and writing it. It's amazing to be able to focus on something in this manner. In the last almost five years I've met so many people, heard so many points of view, and been intrigued and fascinated by what I've learned.
I'd really like to thank everyone who has helped me and provided me with material as they shared their views on what they had experienced in the role-play communities I have followed. My dissertation would never have been possible without you. Thank you!
