Some interesting things from Second Life:
- the property mogul Anshe Chung has made her first, real, million. It was page 3 news in the Metro, the free London morning paper. In theory, thousands of Londoners will create themselves Second Life accounts today, in the hope of making a mint. Maybe not though, since this is in the “Weird” category on the Metro website…
- Linden Lab have announced some significant changes around the visibility of Friends in the next update (tentatively, tomorrow). This is certainly welcome news. You can now set more granular controls as to whether people can see you online, and on the map – bringing an end to “mapping” whereby someone can teleport in to your business meeting or presentation.
- As part of the same update, all private islands are going to become visible on the world map. Interesting!
