This Day in Tech History – WoW and The Doctor

November 23

1963…50 plus years the good Doctor has been thrilling his fans with time travel and adventure, there has been 12 different Doctor Who’s over the long play…but the popularity has not really waned at all.  I remember being introduced to the series during the reign of the 4th Doctor (Tom Baker) at the tender age of 7 or 8 while over at my best friend’s house for dinner.  Doctor Who is as much a part of my own love of Science Fiction as Start Trek is (although for me…Star Trek ALWAYS wins out).

In 2004, Blizzard Entertainment released what would become the largest MMORPG the world has ever known.  World of Warcraft or WoW has been a hit and while I have played it on free accounts a couple of time…I never really got into the whole concept of the game, but there is no disputing that with 7.4 million current subscribers…it is still wildly popular!
