CNN: User Generated Journalism In Second Life
Reuters embedded a reporter in Second Life. But starting the week of November 5, CNN is venturing into Second Life, giving Second Life citizens kits that will allow them to transmit photos and information back to CNN.
This incoming information will inform newsfeeds distributed from kiosks around Second Life. The user-generated journalism is something that CNN is hoping will appeal to the users of Second Life, and something that will foster the spread of information.
Other citizen journalism initiative I like a lot is the user generated newspaper from Korea OhmyNews.
My question to our community: do you feel Second Life is dead or alive? Will you find your second wife in Second Life? More about CNN in Second Life at Mediaweek’s Digital Download.
