The Real Convergence

Never mind telecoms, internet, and television; the real convergence story is the way that real and fictional worlds are becoming ever more closely intertwined: you will soon be able to earn points toward World of Warcraft gold on your credit card, and Creative Home Engineering will build a secret passage in your home today.
