• A big one for me here, as Google Talk is turning on offline messages, so no more lost messages!
  • Over on the (PRODUCT) RED blog, you can find some initial results on how things are going with that launch
  • Did you notice iTunes Latino, the new store within the iTunes Music Store?

  • BusinessWeek Online’s Reena Jana and Alli McConnon have put together one of the most solid roundups I’ve seen in awhile regarding the overall situation with businesses inside Second Life. Of course, you’ll notice that people are taking a lot of old-world, real-world ideas, and simply porting them into the game. While that might work for certain things, it’s not necessarily the best thing to do, as you might have read here. While I’m by no means a Second Life long-timer at all, I am not surprised to hear about things like this.

The thing we should be taking to heart, from the first link here, is that SL isn’t simply about bringing stuff straight in that we happen to know and love in the Real Life world – unless people ask for it. Not trying to work with either SLers themselves or the Linden folks is a mistake that companies are going to learn about in unfortunate ways. You might be able to call the cops for egging your RL home office, but you might not be so lucky in SL, should you come up with some idea that isn’t exactly moving the needle.
