In a virtual world context there is no home and away. p .58
In a virtual world context there is no home and away. The neutrality of the virtual world context dissolves the feeling of distance or isolation that remote geographies often feel relative to the home country of the enterprise or individual. A person from the United Kingdom can drop in on a class in Asia with the touch of a teleport button. There is no travel required, no paperwork, and no advanced notice necessary. In this respect the virtual world may perhaps be even more flat than the real world.
