After listening to the latest PodToid episode and hearing the guys talk about the idea of a plague or virus being released within an MMO world I thought I'd post this for their and your viewing pleasure.
Now first off I'll say this is article about a year old so it may have been posted here sometime ago, but since this seems relevant to the PodToid's interests I'll post away and find out the hard way if it's a repost :) Enjoy.
This article in question is Second Life History: The Jessie Massacre
. And it documents the exploits of a cheeky little coder who created what may have been the worlds first MMO Weapon of Mass Destruction and unleashed it upon an unsuspecting Second Life community.
I won't go into the details as the whole story is just legendary and I don't want to spoil it for you all, so read away and have a good chuckle at the expense of hundreds - maybe thousands - of Second Life err... lives :)
p.s. Since I'm Australian and we're a day ahead of America I just wanna say to Topher in advance that I am SO ready to fucking friday! :D
