Theory of Games and Economic Behavior

While reviewing some notes on the evolution of the meshverse, I came across this 10-year old quote:

In the coalescence of the software, banking, and telecommunications industries, we are spawning the precursors of collective digital organisms that will roam the network like social insects, sending packets of digital currency back to their nests. The push toward interactive communications over the Web is aimed not at delivering content to the consumer(this can be done already), but at delivering money in real time, the other way.

Darwin Among the Machines: The Evolution of Global Intelligence (Helix Books)

The subject of games has been mentioned here as well as on my Rhythmeering blog so I thought this might be of some interest to folks wondering just how deep this rabbit hole of social virtual worlds goes.
