This time thanks to my friend, sometime GM and sometime player, Ryan Verniere. Ryan is the guy who created and ran Malkav the Apocalypse, who saved one group and indirectly TPKed a campaign,
His post Massively Micro Player: The Power of Intimacy and Gaming takes a look at computer vs. tabletop games, and where they have and haven't met up. Especially haven't.
Good post, I recommend it highly. He runs a good GURPS-based Dark Heresy game, too.
