Could You Imagine What People 20 Years Ago Would Do With Your Computer?

People all over the world were forced to evacuate cities that were filled with infected dead bodies.  Regulators set up quarantine zones.  People avoided other people but the disease still spread and killed thousands.  This isn’t a movie or a book.  This actually happened in 2005 and it was a worldwide pandemic.  A worldwide World of Warcraft pandemic.

In 2006, the makers of the global computer game, World Of Warcraft accidentally introduced a bug that spread from player to player and slowly drained their health until they dropped dead just like a real disease.  It got to bad that the game makers had to reset their servers to end it but that wasn’t the end of what came to be called the corrupted blood incident because researchers from everywhere from Tufts University in Massachusetts to the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel have studied the incident and the response from the people who lived through it.

Yes, influential thinkers actually studied a disease breakout in World of Warcraft because the game has created an accurate enough representation of civilisation that it’s a semi accurate model of what would happen if there was a real life pandemic.  Technology is evolving beyond our wildest dreams these days from driver-less cars to video games that are so accurate that researchers study them and what used to be science fiction is becoming reality.

If your job doesn’t take advantage of modern technology then you’re missing out on opportunities that people 10 or 20 years ago wouldn’t believe were possible like earning a 6 figure income form your own computer.  It’s possible within a year from today thanks to a system called MTTB.
