GEEKONOMICS PDF

Author: Edward Castronova Edward Castronova Economics is loosely defined as choice under scarcity. Game designers have given us plenty of utopias where we can have all the mithril we want, to buy whatever we want whenever we want it. Problem is, those worlds turn out to be dull. For example, the developers of Active Worlds made everything in the game free. Players built enormous houses - in which there was nothing to do.

The message is undeniable, but the solutions are questionable: regulations and certifications. Not convinced by his arguments for the solutions to the issues of software bugs and security problems. Factually incorrect in places. Possibly interesting if you have absolutely no tech knowledge difficult in this day in age.

I learnt some interesting things about the manufacture of cement though. Mar 30, Dgg32 rated it really liked it Some are facts, some are fancies.

However, the main message is valid. We need more regulations to the software industry and we should provide them with more incentives to create more secure software.
