My Tiny Life: Crime and Passion in a Virtual World by Julian Dibbell is one of our favorite books of all time. Part memoir and part ethnography, My Tiny Life is about the social life of the online, text-based virtual world LambdaMOO and his own brief encounter with it in the early ’90s.

We first read it just as we were starting out with our ’30 Days in ActiveWorlds‘ work, its influence can be seen in our paper 30 Days in ActiveWorlds – Community, Design and Terrorism in a Virtual World (.pdf download).

My Tiny Life has been republished via lulu and is available as a free download, if you haven’t read it before then enjoy…
