Reuters Second Life Correspondent Removed From Duty
This is a very funny article by Paul Carr, and worth reading if you ever thought (or currently think) that Second Life is lame. But I am posting it here primarily because it contains the news that there was a full time reporter from Reuters posted to cover the Second Life "beat", and now he has been removed from this duty.
then came the earth-shattering news that Reuters has — hold on to your hats — pulled its reporter out of Second Life.
I know what you're thinking, and you're right — as news weeks go, it knocks that one in 1997 when Princess Diana and Mother Theresa died two days apart into a cocked hat.
I mean, Jesus, Second Life? The only thing in any way surprising about this news is that a major news organisation kept a full time reporter in there this long. What the hell did "Eric Reuters" do all day?
