irl Peter Ludlow, Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University

Urizenus Sklar is Founder and Contributing Editor of The Alphaville Herald – an online newspaper that covers events unfolding in virtual worlds and the real world, but typically events involving the scams, scandals and double dealings in the realm of smoke and mirrors when everyone is operating “in avatar”. His alter ego is Peter Ludlow, a Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University, whose main area of research is the philosophy of language, but he also studies conceptual issues in online culture. MTV.com has described him as one of the 10 most influential video game players of all time, but no one knows why.
