Virtual Congressional hearing
The House subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet (of the Committee on commerce and energy) held a hearing about "online virtual worlds" last Friday. The Washington Post story about the hearing tells us that all of the politicians in the hearing were virtual world neophytes and had a lot of basic questions. Philip Rosedale, founder of Linden Labs and Second Life, was there to answer questions and Second Life set up a virtual hearing for them to see. You can watch a video of the hearing here.
