Second Life Makes Business Week Cover

Second Life Virtual World

Virtual land ownership and Second
made it to the cover
of Business Week. Cat’s out of the bag folks.

SL is doing a lot of things right. For one thing it’s not really a “game.”
And like the best of new web content it is generated by its participants. But
it is not governed by its participants. This is because SL is a private
- which in my view means is it an interim world. Open worlds are
the future of virtual places.

As public space disappears and becomes privatized it makes open virtual spaces
all the more important.
