This is interesting:

>From an interview with Richard Garriot, speaking of his next online
project, codenamed (imaginatively), 'X'. (sorry about the formatting. I
cut and pasted, and bloody Pine doesn't like that too much). Full
interview may be found at: http://www.nextgame.it/html/articolo.php?id=653

Nextgame.it: About X: you told that people could earn real money playing
X... how ?

                      Lord British: Imagine... If you put on a play in the
virtual world and could charge
                      a real fee... Or, If you built a fun adventure with
our editors, and people paid a
                      fee to enter your theme park... Or, If you created
some digital art that could not
                      be duplicated, and sold it to them for their
house... Or you made cloths etc... get

                      Nextgame.it: Do you believe in a future where people
could chose their personal
                      world where to live ? And then they can earn money
only playing the game ?

                      Lord British: Oh, yes... I believe that if X works
many people will quit their
                      "real" jobs and live full time in the virtual world
I am creating.

Damn interesting stuff. I've played around with the idea of letting my
players earn real money, but I didn't really want to deal with setting up
the infrastructure for it.
