Political candidates in Second Life


Politics is pretty famously behind the curve, dominated as it is by old white guys in suits (some of whom have ‘internets’ delivered to their office.) But one candidate, presidential hopeful Mark Warner, took his campaign to Second Life last week. That’s not only a first for American politics but also for the burgeoning virtual world of Second Life, whose stock in trade is more goth hooker avatars than informed discussion.
All I can say is….weird. And I kinda hope somebody PWNED him.
