  1. The Future of gaming is online. I would love to be part of a table top game it is not gonna happen. I know because I have tried for the past two years. If the hobby is going to continue we need to evolve with it, yet find a way to keep its core ideology. I am against social networking because of the anti-social behavior many people display online and offline in regards to it. Google Plus is trying to allow you control of your social presence online it might be the facebook killer. Isaac Asimov knew of this future and any fan of his material can easily see how close he was in his vision even in todays world.

    If someone starts a Asimov cult do you think scientologists would be upset? I just want to sit in on that conversation.
