Virtual outbreak

Recommended Posts

This looks like it was really interesting.

 

An accidental plague in WoW that experts are saying ran out like a real one would, mostly.

 

I especially found interesting this part:

 

Nina Fefferman, a Tufts University assistant research professor of public health and family medicine, took notice of the scourge. She recently told National Public Radio that players' reactions to the WoW plague were realistic. Fefferman--who did not return phone calls or an e-mail asking for comment--also said she would like to partner with a game company in a formal study of an outbreak of an infectious disease in a virtual world.
