Edward Castronova: Games and the Internet

Estimated reading time Time 1 to read

Edward Castronova is Professor of Telecommunications at Indiana University and obtained a PhD in Economics from Wisconsin-Madison University. In his article for the book “Ch@nge” he analyzes the current potential of the tandem Interent-games. Is this the perfect combination of factors that may encourage the cultural change?

Professor Castronova highlights the economy and business as the areas where the “digital revolution” will be starkest.
