Crashinews talks of us
Virtual worlds are changing the method of providing informations: we will talk about on 24 March in Naples, from 18.00 at the Libreria Ubik in the second round of meetings with the Sentieri Digitali organized by Francesca Ferrara (aka Capriccio Kaniuk in Second Life), but that in the era of social networking, virtual worlds, the web2.0 is not enough to apply the dear old patterns of information conveyed in print, television or radio (or even on blogs and web sites) seems evident even from a service that friends of Crashinews, the most famous and long-lived online newscast devoted to Second Life, wanted to spend on newspapers in the metaverse of Linden Lab, and you can see on Youtube e qui.
Certainly stucks to see the virtual Cnn office (Reuters has its own broken down a long ago) now a desert, or the old images of 2L Italia, the "Second Life" Magazine" that Maggioli Editore launched in 2008, and that if we remember correctly terminated after the sixth number (the site http://www.2litalia.it is no longer active, but you can still find traces of what was here: http://secondlife.maggioli.it/progetti.html), but is the price to pay for initiatives that, throughout the world, were built on the enthusiasm that followed the media hype and disappeared once out of fashion. SLnn.it and a few others, including friends Crashinews, have exceeded this period always trying to find ways to talk about issues and news that could affect not only the residents of Second Life and fans of virtual worlds in general, but the wider audience that navigates the internet every day (only for Italy Audiweb estimates in December 31.5 million people had access to the web, 22.3 million were active, 10.4 million surfed every day for an average 1.37 hours and 174 pages per day). It is not an easy task and because of this we are pleased to have been mentioned, as we are pleased to see that new initiatives, mentioned in the piece of Papper Papp, have developed and continue to bear. Thank you all, really!ShareThis
