From SmartMobs… Reuters has opened a news bureau inside Second Life. News.com has more: “Adam Pasick, a Reuters’ media correspondent based in London, will serve as the news organization’s first virtual bureau chief, using a personal avatar, or animated character, called “Adam Reuters,” in keeping with the game’s naming system.”
“As strange as it might seem, it’s not that different from being a reporter in the real world,” Pasick said. “Once you get used to it–it becomes very much like the job I have been doing for years.”
Wow – that’s one interesting job, huh? But did you see what the correspondent said? “…it’s not that different from being a reporter in the real world.” I’d have to guess it’d be the same for libraries!
Have you considered having a digital presence within Second Life?
