Reuters and C|Net in Second Life 30

An anonymous reader writes "Reuters is opening a news bureau in the simulation game Second Life, and C|Net is following suit. Both companies are joining a race by corporate name brands to take part in the hottest virtual world on the Internet. Starting on Wednesday, Reuters plans to begin publishing text, photo and video news from the outside world for Second Life members and news of Second Life for real world readers who visit a Reuters news site at: http://secondlife.reuters.com/"

    So? All there is to do in WoW is buy, kill things, sell, and talk.

    "Create" is a pretty damn broad term, and in SL it encompasses a whole lot. Modelling, texturing, scripting, and bringing all of that together to create objects, buildings, landscapes, etc.

    90% of what happens in real life really boils down to social interactions. Why should a "virtual world" be any different. Humans are social creatures.

    The whole credit card thing sounds pretty crappy though. Bastards.

Those who can, do; those who can't, write. Those who can't write work for the Bell Labs Record.

Working...
