I'm trying to frame the things I'm interested in usefully. It's partly history and culture of Eve (what's the background to some of the older corps and alliances, so I can start working out where I'm likely to be an okay fit), partly admin stuff like whether some ways of grouping characters into accounts work better than others, and partly curiosity about something I think you mentioned in passing about some players' reaction on finding that you're a woman.
This is my first MMOG and one of the things I'm finding fascinating about it is the sense of getting to observe behaviours which I don't normally get to see and hear these days. That includes a fair amount of boys behaving badly, sexism and (especially) heterosexism, but also some much more encouraging stuff. I expect that my current sense of anthropological curiosity will wear of in a month or three and I'll be making some decisions about what I'm willing to tolerate and who I want to spend my play time with.
Is there a better forum to chat? LJ private messages? Email? Catching up somewhere while I'm in London this weekend? (I'm not actually sure whether I could timetable that last one, but it's worth a mention.)
