The Solo Play Series – Overview

Back in 2006 Ducheneaut, Yee, Nickell & Moore published the study “Alone Together?” Exploring the Social Dynamics of Massively Multiplayer Online Games. They found that playing alone was a lot more common than we might think. Several polls on the WoW forums have shown similar patterns.

Old computer science textbook from The Old Town in Århus, '74 section. Wore dark lenses on Halloween to see how my colleagues reacted. My natural eye colour is blue. Some didn't notice anything different. Some could barely look me in the eye, cause it freaked them out. This book has been recommended to me by several people. Time to get started!
