Über-Meta Time: Second Life 'talk' of Davos

Adam Pasick Reuters bureau chief for Second Life reports that the virtual world platform is the “talk” of the conference. From the Reuters’ auditorium in Second Life Pasick streams video interviews with World Economic Forum attendees. The Mitch Kapor interview is a discussion of SL itself. Fortune’s David Kirkpatrick makes a similar claim in regard to his Davos jaunt. In fact, he made virtual worlds the subject of the dinner party he hosted. I guess it’s über-meta time. Meta policy makers get tour of metaverse.

Note, in the interview Kapor’s avatar is talking (audio stream) not typing, which is a demo of soon-come SL interface.
