studies named above is that the accepted formula of individual au- tonomy as a criterion for professional performance has become void or at least insufficient as most pro- fessions have been enlisted in teamwork and entan- gled in bureaucracies. The sociology of professions does not usually take account of how assignments are performed within complex projects. To take an example from the medical profession, chief physicians administer- ing public health hospitals in Scandinavia must ac- cept political decisions made outside their hospital, which have consequences for

World of Warcraft culture, as well as through the case of a guild explicitly defined as LGBT. Academic research on game culture is flourish- ing, yet feminist accounts of gender and sexuality in games are still in the making.

Second, the rising importance of, and hence the emphasis on, SSH is inevitable, following the growing complexities and interaction of different, but integral parts, of the emerging economy of Vietnam. More often a long-standing impasse creates persistent pessimism among the public, industry leaders, or even policymakers. This is unfortunate and unnecessary since life has its own upbeat sentiment, even right when one is most pessimistic. Therefore, the

mechanics, as well as most rules in digital games, are inherently rule based or “ludic”. For instance, the Steam Community Market provides tools like buy orders, sell listings and filtering options that afford different “playing strategies” to optimize players’ profit margins. However, games are never purely ludic but characterized by constant tension between rule-based play (e.g. improving one’s performance according to the rules imposed by the game) and more free-form improvisational play (e.g. including the pursuit of self-imposed goals); depending on the game context

Windows are interdependent in that the results in primary windows have ripple effects in subsequent windows. A film’s theatrical opening weekend performance will generally affect both the length and the width of its remaining cinema release and its performance, and thus its value, in subsequent windows.
