My article on virtual worlds is in The Georgia Straight

Blog-secondlife1.533

The article I wrote for The Georgia Straight on virtual worlds, most notably Second Life, is in today's issue and online [tgs].  Because of the backlog of tech reporting the Straight currently has one of the virtual worlds I wrote about, Google's Lively, has actually closed down since I submitted the piece. 

The closure lends some weight to a blog post I wrote for the Straight earlier this month about Pownce closing, and how it's important to keep local backups of anything you store in the internet cloud but want to know is safe [tgs].
