Is this an important step to helping an old media conglomerate understand how people are using the internet?
Or just a trivial exercise to make that old media conglomerate look like they get it?
So, what exactly is news in a virtual world?
CNN aims to find out by opening an I-Report hub in Second Life, a three-dimensional virtual world created entirely by its residents.
There, CNN will look to those most familiar with the virtual world — the Second Life residents themselves — to determine what constitutes news “in-world.”
Although I’m also struggling to figure out the attraction of Second Life, I still vote for the later.
