Second Life Millionaire
By helzerman on Jan 04, 2007
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!
