>...I read, I think in the Wall Street Journal, about a "virtual community" of
some type that seems to be catching on on the internet.  It seemed something
like this only more.   In that virtual city or town or whatever it was you
create a character, then that character lives out a life at your direction,
interacting with other virtual characters that others direct.<

You're thinking of The Sims, an online game that uses virtual characters. It's
an outgrowth of the original SimCity, which began as a sort of virtual urban
planning game. See <http://www.maxis.com/>. Lit-Ideas is a competitor.
