Ganesh and Alec had a conversation (okay, a couple) in Ganesh's journal. One of the outcomes of the talk was that they developed a plan in which, under the guise of false avatars, Ganesh and Character (or characters) X would start going into the virtual world and trying to determine where wild card hate groups were located. As this team locates the groups, Alec would assist in destroying bases/avatars/whatever after information had been gained.
Now, Ganesh is going to present this openly in character so it's official. I wanted to put it here, however, to point out a couple things.
I'm seeing these places as being like the V-clubs (Virtual clubs) in Caprica. Since probably not everyone's familiar with those, have a link:
Basically, it's your standard SF spot like Second Life, only bigger. You make your Avatar and do variably horrible things because it's not real. The V-clubs are illegal but everyone's kind of aware of them on a low level. They exist as an offshoot of regular online activity.
Also, while Ganesh will be investigating these with whoever he can get to help him, it's also okay for other people to steal this idea and run with it, imho. It's just kind of an ongoing project for him and an easy way for nats to go after crime with a playing field that got much more equal.
So this is what I'm thinking. It's very loose- feel free to jump in with comments, steal it, adapt it, whatever.
