Wall Street Journal blogs about virtual economy research

I usually don’t do self-serving posts about media appearances, but this one is good enough to point out: WSJ Blogs’ Real Time Economics has an article titled Real Economist Learns From Virtual World. It’s a decent story about the space MMO EVE Online published by CCP Games, and HIIT’s virtual economy research collaboration with them. My boss Marko Turpeinen is interviewed. The only thing they get wrong is the name of our unit (it’s the Network Society research program, not the Social Media research group:).
