crayon: new marketing company has headquarters online, in second life

The problem with a company of people from all over is how to bring them together. The new marketing company crayon is doing that in Second Life (think The Sims + World of Warcraft).

So the employees can all meet together even as they live far apart, within their headquarters online. For me, I wonder when I can meet clients avatar-to-avatar. Cheaper than face-to-face, but better than just being on the phone.

Thanks to Shel for the story.

    I do like this idea. I’m a Second Life user myself and I can see it would be fun to hang round the water cooler for a chat as you would in real life.

    Jim, you are familiar with Stephenson’s Snowcrash? This is the Metaverse come to life, almost. When they get good voice recognition and facial recognition, we will all be on there, all the time.

    No I’m not familiar with that at all. Sounds intriguing.
