 Suzanne Vega Performs Virtual Concert, Online on Second Life

MMO’s (Multi-Player Online) Game [or MMORPG (Multi-Player Online Role Playing Games)] offer to let people present themselves through an online environment via an avatar.

I am fascinated by how businesses may eventually use this technology.

It is clear that there is Real Money Trade (RMT) in online gaming, but not clear what transition will give us all the ability to do business through our avatar.

In the meantime, it was nice to hear of this first live concert via avatar. Suzanne Vega (http://www.suzannevega.com) did this through The Infinite Mind (http://www.theinfinitemind.com) within the online gaming environment of Second Life (http://secondlife.com).

There are video clips of the concert at YouTube.com. Wired covered this at the link below (updated).
