Virtual Biz

From the "No It Isn't April First" department: Brand Republic reports that Leo Burnett has opened a new office inside the virtual community Second Life. Other recent Second Life launches: Toyota, Adidas. IBM's Wladawsky-Berger suggests virtual worlds will transform business. Wired writes about folks making their living on SecondLife. If you've not checked out Second Life (wikipedia entry) give it a visit. Some stats to give a sense of scale:
  • total user base: 850k
  • users who've logged in last 60 days: 360k
  • Second Life GDP: US $64m.
Big numbers.
