We'll all be citizens of virtual worlds

Over at The Guardian, Victor Keegan has an interesting article titled “We’ll all be citizens of virtual worlds”. It gives a nice overview, some explanations of what people are doing already in virtual worlds, and some info on Twinity.

I have an apartment in Twinity’s Berlin and was surprised how easy it was to import media. In one room there are videos from my YouTube collection running on a screen. In another my Flickr.com photo collection is on view. l also linked the screen to guardian.co.uk and was able to read the paper from inside the virtual world.

There’s also a discussion about jobs in virtual worlds, and earning virtual currency.

During a period of financial collapse and worries about global warming, they could prove an ideal safe haven.
