IBM is putting its heft behind a project that could morph into new way of doing business in Second Life, Linden Lab's virtual 3-D community. The two have partnered to build a protected enclave in Second Life where the company can conduct serious business without fear of marauders. While there are more than 100 corporate storefronts in the virtual community, none operate behind a firewall. Now, though, IBM employees -- or rather, their avatars -- can collaborate and communicate in a secure Second Life zone.

It's the best news I've read all day

Good, hopefully IBM will keep its little fantasy geek enclave behind its firewall and let the rest of us conduct serious business without the aid of avatars and make-believe furniture.
This might be the future of business for techies, but thankfully it isn't the future of business for those of us making a living in First Life.

I'll take any COVID-19 vaccine that is made available to me right now.
I'm not sure. I need more time to make an educated decision.
I'm not interested in getting a COVID-19 vaccine at this time.
