My new flow-related study has been recently presented

This is probably a follow-up. Just want to mention that a new study on flow experienced while online gaming has been recently presented. This time it has been done within the communities of Chinese gamers - in continental (pre-Olympic) China. Again, flow is the major factor. The paper has been presented at CATAC (www.catacconference.org/) meeting in Nimes, France in late June, 2008.
The survey has been done by my former grad Chinese student Weitse, and the presenter was my PhD student Nastya Avetisova, who is fluent both in English & in French and who participated heavily in this study. I'd like too to go to France to present the paper (I've never been in France), but I was busy at a Moscow Cognitive Science conference (cogsci2008.ru/eng) where I was in the Board and chaired two sections.
The paper is published in a book of Proceedings which is not online.

Yes I can, although i am not quite happy with this particualr study (not too many Chinese respondents). My cross-cultural MUD studies are strongly outfashioned, I know, but nevertheless there are hundreds of thousands fans devoted to these text-only roleplay games.
The general idea is that perhaps the gamers experience flow which is a joy, and they estimate this experience high enough to go on playing the outfashioned type of games: this is one of the secrets of the popularity of MUDs.
It looks like this is true with Russian, French, English, Chinese speakers, as our studies suggest.

Yes exactly, in some moments I can phrase that I acquiesce in with you, but you may be making allowance for other options.

You recognize, people each time enact comments when anything is predicted to take place in 2012, like “fairly that is if the faction is still here.” You do realize that the Mayans suggest the faction will finish on Dec. 21 (or 23rd)? So in all strong if anything is booming to turn up in 2012 there is solitary the slimmest conceivability that the everybody hand down have ended before it happens.
