Annotate Bibliography: Research Proposal

September 25, 2012

One point I found irksome in Howard Rheingold’s book was the assertion that people who play an online game such as World of Warcraft. I am a strong proponent of the position that the internet is merely a tool may be used for good or evil depending of the person using the tool. I will however submit to the argument that social mass media has the propensity to be more likely to democratic. My position on World of Warcraft is that is a virtual community. Much like tangible communities there are leadership roles that individuals can undertake and perhaps increase their leadership skills. However, the leadership roles are few compared to overall population. I would like to propose a test to evaluate an individuals leadership score before and after playing World of Warcraft to properly assess Rheingold’s position.
