Journalism is Second Life

February 12, 2008

Beat Blogging has an interview with Eric Krangel who is known as Eric Reuters in Second Life as he reports for Reuters about key events in the virtual 3D world. As in real life, digging up stories involves in part staying in contact with and maintaining social networks, and Eric makes some interesting observations about social networks in world.
The Reuters Second Life Blog is worth checking out, as Eric does not report on in world dramas but his stories focus on the overlap between life and second life.

For instance, recently Eric has been covering the copy right theft issue. With US$1.4 million dollars circulating through Second Life every day this issue is not simply an in world drama but one that effects the real life income of the designers of virtual products.
