IBM staff told to get another life

OK.  After all my cynicism about Second Life becoming mainstream, mainly due to the Wild West nature of the Linden Labs offer, I take it all back.

My issue
was related to mashups, bombing, cyberterrorism and more.  It was also
related to the Second Life banking crash after they outlawed Gambling.

As
Neil Katz, chief technology officer of IBM’s Digital Convergence
business, states: “The internet, not just Second Life, is the Wild West
once you get beyond the corporate firewall.”

Today however, IBM announced
a strategic agreement with Linden to create a corporate virtual world
that is secure, firewalled and enterprise ready in Second Life.

Wow!  Go, go, go you IBMers and get another life.
