InformationWeek Sees The Light

Though this isn’t news for folks who’ve been following this blog, it is yet another significant sign that the meshverse paradigm is taking root. Some notable quotables:

If 2006 was the year Second Life made it’s way into the news, 2007 will be the year the business community takes notice. … There are even Second Life real estate magnets who claim to have made millions. Some technologists even predict that the real world and the virtual world are headed on a collision course. …

Sun and Reuters aren’t alone. Even business-to-business media firms are looking to launch virtual events in Second Life.

Where does Google figure into all this? Some people think Google’s SketchUp could be used to create a rival world to Second Life. Will Google continue to stand on the sidelines of the fast-emerging MMORPG market or will 2007 be the year they also pay attention?
