Government Coming To The New Frontiers?

You might have guessed that, once Reuters got their foot in the door, all sorts of other riff-raff would be swift to follow them into Second Life. And you’d have been right – Reuter’s first metaverse report announces that the US Congress is starting to investigate the economies of synthetic worlds in earnest. So you may want to option a tax accountant before quitting the day-job for that lucrative career in dragon slaying or virtual tailoring. Apparently some Congressmen are already exploring SL (and Warcraft) of their own accord, so be nice to n00bs – and watch who you chat to! 😉
