Yes, I think you've about covered my list!

no.8 would have been - and anything else.

The virtual thing interested me, as I work with computers. Co-workers look at me sceptically when I mention this. Its definately going that way…for some people, although I think eventually many people will get fed up with it and go back to basics.

I'd like to add apathy -- let somone else/the government solve all problems,
credentialism -- your ideas won't be listened to unless you're "approved",
preferential tax treatments -- if the game is no longer fair, then why bother
