Joshua BR: I don't know, however, how to get there from here!
If you mean that you don't know how to change your own personal, local social support network, well, me neither. Changing mine was very easy, but we were primed for it.
However, if you mean that you don't know how we at large are going to create the new culture-scale social support network we need - don't stand in the doorway don't block up the hall! It's happening already, you're even already part of it.
Whether we bring "gamer culture" along with us is pretty much up to gamer culture.

JBR go "Providing Tools For It"
Mostly I mean in terms of providing tools for it and actively fostering the broad-scale manifestation of the New World Order. One element of it, I think, is that is no longer local. Addressing and participating in such a vast, global, shifting social structure requires tools, techniques, technology, and all sorts of other good stuff.
VB go "nah, seriously -"
He that gets hurt will be he who has stalled. We're doing it, to keep doing it we just keep doing it.
