An Unusual Science Conference
An unusual science conference was held recently in Azeroth. Many of you, like me, who know where Azeroth is. It's the virtual world of World of Warcraft. There were more than 200 people in attendance.
The three days of meetings were packed full of interesting discussion about science, or so I'm told. What was most exciting were the social events, culminating on the last day when all of the participants died in a mass attack on an enemy fortress. I've never been to a science conference that was quite like that.
