Default Wired's New Rules for Highly Evolved Humans

See the article here.

Do any resonate here particularly with the Council? Any creative minds have some SWC-specific ideas?

I'm kind of freaked out about the etiquette of "Should I ask my World of Warcraft wife if she's really a dude?" I don't think that's an issue here, thank God.

Highly evolved Humans? Who they?

I think this may be perspective worth noting!

"Should I ask my World of Warcraft wife if she's really a dude?"
I've only ever asked someone if they are a dude, while standing in a bar, because there, and then, it mattered!

Rather than associate evolved as in evolution with the issues on this list, I would lean more towards devolved as in regression.

Idiocracy was not just a movie. It was a warning...
