Ready to laugh? Well, the head of the Australian High Tech Crime Centre is convinced (and trying to convince a security conference) that terrorists are using World of Warcraft to “recreate simulated world environments.” He also goes on to say, “We need to start thinking about living, working and protecting two worlds and two realities.” Is it us? Or does the entire BGR Brigade feel like, regardless of how much they play WoW, it won’t come close to simulating reality? Granted, long sessions of the game are some people’s reality, but not the vast majority of the population, and certainly not the intended targets of terrorists. Fools.
