On switching content with networks, and great sleep cures

“What are you thinking?” Liz said to me last night, just as we were settling down for bed.

So I talked to her about how, when I started playing World of Warcraft, how I thought it was a game with a social element, and now that I’d completed the levelling phase, I saw it more as a social network with a gaming element. I mentioned watching the Tottenham-Arsenal match on TV last Saturday and said how it occurred to me that in the old days, it was mainly about the football with a celebrity element, and now it was more about watching the celebrities, and football was one part of that. I commented that maybe there were some parallels, as the content – gaming or football – were being superseded by the contextual network that ran around both, and perhaps it was only a matter of time before sport and online gaming, watching and networking also merged. I started to say something else…

… then I realised Liz was sound asleep.
