More Second Life in the mainstream press

This Saturday, The Times – the newspaper of record in the UK – ran a 2 page spread on Second Life (online version here). This was in the main newspaper, not in the magazine or one of the other weekend supplements. Nothing stunningly new in the coverage… again talking about real people making real money through SL (Anshe Cheung always seems to get a mention in these pieces), how easy it is to get started, the various subcultures you might encounter (with the usual health warnings). The message was very much, “this could be the next big thing”. Well, if it is, I’m glad that I’m involved already…

Striking that I seem to encounter SL in so many places in Real Life now. This is just yet another example of the mainstream media paying attention.

The Second Life Insider blog has its own coverage of the article.
