Social networking, WoW style

Napster creator and World of Warcraft fan Shawn Fanning is launching an MMO version of MySpace, called Rupture, with WoW as the test ground.

It springs from his obsession with the game, and his frustration at being unable to communicate or organise effectively. Shawn%26rsquo;s system will tap into the game, grab your characters%26rsquo; stats, and create a personalised webspace. It%26rsquo;ll evolve with your characters, and if you join a guild, it%26rsquo;ll provide a meeting space online.
