Some Get It, Some Don't
By Aimee Spanier
People are congregating around the computer terminals, creating
avatars, exploring Ozone, interacting. They're walking, talking,
dancing...they seem to be getting it.
One couple approaches a computer manned by an Oz staff member. They
peer at the screen for a moment, lean in for a better look and think
about what they're seeing. The woman, feeling bold, taps the Ozoner on
the shoulder, no doubt to ask a probing, intelligent question about the
"So, is this where you, you know, make an avatar so you can party with
people online, so you don't have to party with the people here?"
Well, um, sure. You could look at it that way. Luckily, most of the
people here don't.
