  8. Both Ready Player One and Neal Stephenson’s Reamde (REAM-de, not a typo) came out around the same time. Both dealt with using virtual worlds in replacement to real world actions other than gaming. (Teaching in RPO, airport security lines in Reamde)

    Do you think we as a society are ready for virtual worlds to blur into reality large scale like this, or does it just make real good fiction?
