Tringo is an online multiplayer game created by Nathan Keir (aka Kermitt Quirk) in December 2004 that runs inside the virtual reality platform Second Life. It is described as a cross between Tetris and Bingo.

Due to the popularity of Tringo there were a lot of compaints of Second Life players that the players of the Tringo game were anti-social, too much occupied with games and lost all touch with social life. That's a weird reality in reality situation!

Hmmm.. through this we get to know human nature??

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
