Cory Doctorow on "For the Win"

If you've ever played one of the big online multi-player fantasy games like World of Warcraft or... ., you know that in the beginning, there's a certain amount of drudge work. But you can cheat and get someone else to do it for you. Cory Doctorow has written a novel about it, called "For the Win," and tells Anne Strainchamps about gold-farming, and why people do it.
