Journalism in the Age of Second Life

by Brian Howard
At his office in San Francisco, Daniel Terdiman spends an average of one hour per day as his character GreeterDan Godel in the online “metaverse” program Second Life. However, Terdiman doesn’t have to worry about getting in trouble with his boss because his time spent in the increasingly popular virtual world is part of his job as a reporter for CNET, the technology-focused media company. While Terdiman says he does enjoy visiting Second Life for fun, he primarily logs on to do work-related research and interviews.
