Few know that way back in the day, 1993 to be exact, a text-based social network "mansion" called LambdaMOO was hijacked by a "Mr. Bungle," who singlehandedly detonated the new world utopia by misbehaving most grievously at a virtual party.  Somewhat based on the real story of the first instance of virtual rape, the attempt to deal with the perpetrator and the awkward Charlie Rose episode that followed, Mr. Bungle and the Incident at LambdaMOO explores our fascination with hiding behind a keyboard, the impulse to be bad, and the anonymity that made it all possible.
