The Local – Sweden to set up embassy in Second Life — Jeez, this has to be a hoax.

Sweden is to become the first country to establish diplomatic representation in the virtual reality world of Second Life, officials said on Friday.

“We are planning to establish a Swedish embassy in Second Life primarily as an information portal for Sweden,” Swedish Institute (SI) director Olle Wästberg told AFP.

The embassy would not provide passports or visas but would instruct visitors how to obtain such documents in the real world and act as a link to web-based information about the Scandinavian country.

    I’m sure they’ll be able to reach at least 10 of the 100 active users Second Life got…

    Sadly, there are a lot of losers in the world. Way more than 100.

  3. Grrr says:

    Hoax or not, the Metaverse is still gaining traction. A shared telepresence ‘space’ is too much of an equalizer to fail, in the long run, whether it’s a direct descendant of Second Life or not.

    Sounds like one of those cheesy “Visit Sweden” travel info kiosks or something. I wonder if they will perpetuate the stereotype by staffing the embassy with tall, buxom blondes?

  5. Brian says:

    ‘Crackpot Sweden’?

    Why, because they are taking advantage of new and different technologies to promote their country?

    And people who play second life are ‘losers’?

    The ignorance by people never ceases to amaze me.

    So, i mean when you get in trouble in a second life, you gotta have a place to go, especially an Embessy, so that Second Life cant put you in jail for crimes lol. wtf.
