Mining For Gold

'Nowadays, keyboards and mice are the new ploughs and shears.'

I wrote about making a living by accumulating gold and other valuables in MMPORGs in my crime novel Players, published less than two years ago (I called it 'click farming' rather than 'gold farming'; same difference). It's an even bigger business now, and naturally enough most of the labour has mostly migrated to China, where it's cheapest. Wonder what these keyboard cowboys are going to do with all that processing power when gamers in the West can't afford to buy virtual wealth and prestige any more.
