  1. Oscar, do you think social interaction in MMORPGs will be the essay, or should it be a part of a piece about MMORPGs. Levinson gives us the SL chapter, but other than the cost of WoW, it could fit somewhat effectively into the NNM category. And really, the essay does not need to fit perfectly in NNM; WoW seems like social media with a price tag. Topics could include:
    complete immersion–how does WoW achieve it?
    in-world social media: what do players really say to each other?
    the discussion boards (and other sites?)
    the economy: how does it work.
    WoW should be ripe for a tetrad and a procedural rhetoric analysis.

    I’m going to go out on a limb and say focus isn’t your strong suit, so if I can help with that part, let me know. : )
