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/"

    "I'm still waiting for the in game Radio Shack salespeople that follow you around for hours while you play asking if they can help you find what you're looking for"

    The same guys that give you the third degree and have you fill out a 3 page form when you try to buy just one battery? I had one of those refuse to sell me something because the fake zip code I gave for the zip code question was not a real code.

    your on Slashdot - news for ...ah you know. Now go read Snowcrash. Now sit and ponder that for a second. SL is the closest thing i have heard of to the metaverse

    Yeah, I know I'm on slashdot and therefore a geek and therefore in no position to be bashing a virtual world as lame. Which I why I was careful to say that wasn't my intention. I have read Snowcrash and I know exactly what you mean. "In concept it sounds cool" - that's my opinion too, and yet I've never actually gone and tried it. And given the tiny number of replies these topics always get, I wondered if nearly everyone on /. was like me in that regard... sounds neat, but not actually a part of it...
