Second Life Millionaire

Interesting article by Rob Hof of BusinessWeek today profiling Second Life's "first millionare."

He writes, "Anshe Chung, the virtual land baroness that I highlighted in my cover story earlier this year, My Virtual Life, has apparently become the first millionaire in Second Life.
That's millionaire in real U.S. dollars. Her real-world persona, Ailin
Graef, figures her net worth based on her substantial in-world land
holdings, cash in "Linden dollars," which can be converted to real
cash, as well as virtual shopping malls, store chains, and even virtual
stock-market investments in Second Life businesses."

What's really funny is that the cover of BusinessWeek (check it out here) is an avatar!
