I just read this. On the front page even!
EQII and UO are mentioned too but SL gets the bulk of the article.

Anyone spot what looks like a mistake in his comments regards SL?

(can be read one of two ways, but to an outsider probably reads the wrong way)

Yes, he referred to GOM as "Second's Life's" own currency exchange program called
Gaming Open Market."

Oooh, GREAT quotables:

"For charitable activity, no virtual world matches that of "Second Life," which since its June 2003 launch has seen fundraisers for tsunami victims, the American Cancer Society and even a veterans organization, the drive for which was led by a "Second Life" resident who had served with the Special Forces in Afghanistan and Iraq."

""Second Life" is not an MMORPG, but an open-ended virtual world where residents are free to make of it what they will courtesy of in-house development tools and programming scripts. "

I'm printing this page! Organizers should be proud, for sure, but big congrats go out to all the people who have come forward and donated their time and money. This is a tremendous thing for Second Life to be known for!

Awesome, and congrats Katt! Its nice to see some others getting press instead of the "Chip n Flip, Anshe n Aimee" show. :-)

They didn't ask for permission to use the graphic from SLBoutique with the t-shirt though! As tempting as it is to call a Microsoft organization on the DMCA, I think I'll let this one slide. :-)

Regards,

-Flip
