Virtual sweatshops

It seems like the story about virtual sweatshops is true after all. Romanian workers play computer games for 10 hours a day to produce virtual goods in MMORPGs which are later sold through eBay or through other websites such as Gamersloot. In those places you can buy powerful accounts, virtual estate or other goodies to satisfy your gaming needs.

What are people buying and selling? Well, on eBay you can buy an ethereal llama. I am jealous, I am just techno, I’m not even ethereal!
