NEWS THAT HAD ME THINKING: HUGE TRADING ON TV: Well the thought cross my mind "Once", specially when i saw pictures of people in their couch watching tv but it was a very long time ago...I saw this story that i'll like for you all to read, it couldn't have been posted more perfectly: http://us.i1.yimg.com/videogames.yahoo.com/feature/wow-inc-/1203104
And it had me thinking: Read the Part where it says:
"If you're part of the ever-shrinking majority who's never taken a step in Warcraft's world, you probably aren't prepared for the richness of the ebb and flow of supply and demand that's taking place every day in Azeroth. On each of the game's many servers, a system of auction houses lets between 15 and 30 thousand players trade goods they've acquired from killing monsters or manufactured from raw ingredients harvested from the world, all for the game's glibly-named currency, "gold."
If you read the article it will tell you that TRADE/COMMERCE goes on in that game....Read also the part that says:
"You may not be able to buy shares in your Warcraft server, but you can certainly invest in its future."
And it had me thinking:
What if there was something like a game but something serious that was for real that everyone will have in their houses and could connect to by just bying the software in their local Walmart for 30 dollars...LOL...And they will be able to play and/or BET or "TRADE" trade like they do in Wall Street and the money is automatically deposited/collected in/from your bank account? LOL...What if...Specially "TRADING", because betting will follow...But i am talking trading been easier than what they do in wallstreet or something different at least not been bureaucratic like the way WallStreet is....But something that you connect to worldwide, not something you connect in your district, i am talking something like the World Wide Web that anyone can connect to, same thing here but through the TV....Well that's where the future is....It may not be in the next 40 years, but watch and see...
