online countries

If social networks or online communities are going to become political entities, someone will say:

Where are you from?
I am from Facebook, and you?
I am from Twitter.

Online countries establish laws and taxes.


A facebooker, an ebayer and a twitterzen once met in second life:

I sell my privacy everyday: said the facebooker.

I sell my things everyday: said the ebayer.

I sell my opinions everyday, said the twitterzen.

Is sharing a lot different than selling?
Does the price really matter, if it is not paid in money?
