NY Times on Virtual Gold Farming

Those of you interested in virtual property and the economies of MMOGs should check out an article from yesterday's NY Times Magazine on Chinese gold farms -- companies that accumulate virtual property and sell it for real-world money.  The article also mentions a class-action lawsuit filed by players of one MMOG against retailers of virtual property.
