Three articles published in the last few days have talked about the use of SL by NOAA, NASA and other parts of the government.
“Science Web Pulls Curious into Virtual World” was in the February 19 edition of the Denver Post. It has quotes by our very own Dragonfire Kelly, as well as Hackshaven Harford from NOAA and Hygeia Philo of the CDC.
“NOAA Creates a Second Life” appeared in The Daily Camera (Boulder) and focuses on NOAA.
“Get a Life”, published in Government Computer News (GCN), talks about Congress and NOAA.
Interestingly, none of the articles make the old mistake of calling SL a game. Now they think it is a website.
UPDATE: A fourth article, “Virtual CDC Spreads Like Flu” covers the CDC and NOAA in SL.
