Markets in everything China fact of the day

The cult-like fascination with the game has even spawned a World of Warcraft-themed restaurant in China, complete with dishes inspired by the game.

The article has other interesting features, mostly on the value of WoW experience in the job market.  Here is one bit:

…employers specifically instruct him not to send them World of Warcraft
players. He said there is a belief that WoW players cannot give 100%
because their focus is elsewhere, their sleeping patterns are often not
great, etc.

Good, humorous uses of "etc." are not easy to come by.

“But other online game enthusiasts, such as Joi Ito, a venture capitalist, have argued that online games can double as a training field for players to hone skills in leadership, teamwork and project management”

I agree. YOU try managing the collective defensive efforts of 350 people when their morale is absolute crap because they are engaged in a military operation they don’t believe in and half of your junior officers have either resigned or are inactive. And don’t forget not to say anything mean to our allies either!

Is anyone else really creeped out by an employer that tries to micromanage their employees’ off-work activities to the extent they have an official policy on what video games employees are allowed to play?
