Interesting, though somewhat based on the flawed assumption that correlation implies causation. Maybe social media users are less likely to engage in face to face conversations because introverts prefer social media?

"Voxel Quest (VQ) is a single-player, isometric, procedural, emergent, voxel-based, roguelike, tactical, turn-based RPG" which claims to be "one of the few game engines [...] that is truly volumetric.  That means that every object is solid in a non-trivial manner.  If you slice a brick wall in half, you will find every brick laid out properly in the new cross section. [...]  By default, there are 128^3 (about 2 million) voxels per cubic meter.  As a comparison, Minecraft uses one voxel (or quasi voxel) per cubic meter."

Well, this sounds interesting...
