Second Life going a bit too far?

CNET’s News.com site is interviewing an IBM exec in charge of technical strategy and innovation on Tuesday. Not really noteworthy until you get to the location of the interview: CNET’s Second Life office.

You’re invited to listen in, as long as you can follow these directions: “The interview is in the auditorium on the third floor of the CNET office, and the easiest way to get in is to fly to the open balcony to the right of the building’s main entrance.”

I find the Second Life phenomenon fascinating, but this strikes me as more than a little ridiculous.

On another note, I’m going to be out of the office on a leave of absence for the next three months or so. Happy holidays and see you in the spring.
