Comments on MMOG For Military Training
This idea has a lot of implications for how US troops (and security people) might be trained in the future. Do you have a better sf reference than I do? I hope so. (Read

|"Exactly. It might be hard to find a good reference. The military itself has been using simulators since the 1920's. Trainers built by the Link Company were used to provide night flying skills. Here's a description:
"These trainers looked like sawed-off coffins mounted on a pedestal, and were used to teach instrument flying. The darkness inside the trainer cockpit, the realistic readings on the instrument panel, and the motion of the trainer on the pedestal combined to produce a sensation similar to actually flying on instruments at night. The Link trainers were very effective tools for their intended purpose, teaching thousands of pilots the night flying skills they needed before and during World War II."

There's a guy here in Israel who wants to build the third temple as a MMOG so people from all over can gather and worship ... the second temple was sacked by the Romans. Would the third temple be sacked by a bunch of beer-guzzling griefers from a military MMOG ?!"
