This Could be Bloody....

Heather Green

Interesting story from Australia's The Age builds on the question I was asking earlier about social media and ads. The online game Project Entropia is letting players create ads for themselves within the game.

I haven't played Second Life, the very very popular game/community, so I don't know if this is a common thing. The Age reports that Project Entropia sells virtual billboards where players promote fashion shows and hunting competitions that are taking place within the game. (Via Adrants)

You get your money for nothing, your chicks for free. It sounds more dramatic than it really is.

As you've probably guessed, I've been tracking this sort of thing. I rarely get into Project Entropia, but I'm pretty active in Second Life. There are advertising systems in Second Life, and they're actually much more interesting (imo) because they more closely relate to things like Google's new location-based system. If you ever want to learn more, drop me a note (Csven Concord in SL).
