Of course, there is a lot of parallels between the Wikipedia environment,
MMOs and Virtual Worlds - and Wikipedia is something like a stripped down,
text only variant of the former and the latter, full of individual quests,
virtual friends/enemies and problems/solutions. And when a wikipedian
stops learning, (s)he leaves. The real question is what to do about it.
For example, do we need a presence in Second Life so players can refer to
Wikipedia without leaving the game?

Not just in Second life and not just to refer. MMORPGs are for long time
places for socialization, too. We would for sure get some editors if it
would be possible to edit Wikimedia projects from virtual environments.
