TR'S HOT TOPIC: WORLD OF WARCRAFT AS NETWORKING TOOL

TechRepublic members are abandoning our forums in droves these
days--but only so they can meet up again in World of Warcraft. (We're
glad you come back again the next day, too.) Of course, given that our
membership is prone to debating the feasibility of gravitic lasers, has
favorite brands of hard drives, and is toying with dual-booting Windows
on iMacs, it's no surprise that online roleplaying games would be a big
hit. You people fit the profile, big time.
