In Second Life, a Hollywood production company is outsourcing its Second Life projects to its Vietnamese branch, where highly-skilled workers can make professional 3D environments for the fraction from the cost, were it done here. It’s obvious that this Chinese farmers of Warcraft might evolve in to the blue collar workers on the 3D Internet.
MTV producer Matt Sunbulli put us talking to Ge Jin, and then we asked him about this phenomenon, and sought their own ideas on its relation to the longer term on the job online.
How did you locate these wow gold farms?
Ge Jin: I own a friend who had previously been operating a gold farms in Shanghai since 2003. So his gold farm will be the first one I visited. My buddy’s gold farm closed in 2005, so did most gold farms in Shanghai. Most of them migrated to smaller cities with lower housing and human resource costs.
Well , i contacted other gold farms through my buddy’s old network… I had been fortunate to discover several gold farms that were available to me in Jinhua, Nanjin, Lishui and Hangzhou. Again I became lucky to win their trust. It’s probably because I’m from the same background as many gaming workers (many gold farm owners were former gaming workers.)
Were gold farmers afraid the Chinese government would shut them down?
GJ: Those who allowed me to film there were unafraid since they are in cities where local goverments are tolerant on this industry. There isn’t a national policy regulating this new industry yet, therefore it’s nearly a nearby governments to gauge.
Most local governments don’t have any motive to seal down these gold farms, while they reduce unemployment and in some cases lessen the crime rate by reducing unemployed male youth on the street. Some gold farms refused my visit since they don’t want to pay tax and tend to operate underground, or they may be worried that their labor practice is problematic…
How much does WoW gold farming suggest about the way forward for work?
GJ: I think these wow gold usa farms indicate which the game platform has got the possible ways to engage more people in Internet-driven economy. The gaming workers in China don’t have skills like English, software or graphics to take part in other forms of Internet-driven work, they can communicate and navigate in a very 3D game world whose tools and routines they may be familiar with… In case more social and economic activities happen within an accessible 3D game world, people who don’t get access to other culture capital but gaming knowledge will be more probably be incorporated into global interaction. 6t9dfje
