Second Life brings back JFK... but not for long:
Virtual marketing firm Avatar Promotions has created a Second Life version of Dealey Plaza, the Dallas street where President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. The company plans to hold a re-enactment of the event on its anniversary next week: an invitation-only event to which 40 people will be invited. Lead consultant Jason Baird hopes the virtual version will become a magnet to conspiracy theorists...
And, according to the Daily Mail, politicians go 3D -- for the first time ever:
Some people believe that politics is just a game - and now it is ... a computer game.
Following in the footsteps of such virtual-reality heroes as Lara Croft and the Super Mario Brothers come Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, David Cameron, Alistair Darling and Des Browne.
All five - accompanied, bizarrely, by two characters meant to resemble Keira Knightley and Paris Hilton - appear in SeriousPolicy, a new game intended to make politics more interesting to young people.
