I'm dedicating this post to my collegue Bertalan Mesko from scienceroll ( who writes a lot about Second life):
CDC (The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) bought an island in Second Life world this month. They paid for it 2,000$. This purchase is part of "being there" and established the CDC existancy in the virtual world. The strategy is to reach a new audiance in the web world by running such an island. The island will be the center of the CDC in Second Life world. A lot of people think that living your life through avators in the virtual world will be more and more popular and common . Maybe it will become the way people will navigate in the web in the near future. The CDC intending to open the island for public this fall.
