Next week, IBM is debuting an SOA island in Second Life. If you don't know what Second Life is yet, read this, this or this, and get ready to have your mind blown. This is not just the future of technology, it's the future of commerce.
If you don't believe me, visit the site of the Reuters' Second Life reporter, Adam Pasnick, who spends all his time reporting on things that occur inside Second Life. Also, for a special ebizQ look, here's a screencast video of the virtual me trying to fly, and totally hitting my head on the ceiling! Nice to know that I can be a virtual klutz in addition to an actual klutz!
Get yourself an Avatar right now! And when you do, look around for ebizliz Bohm! That's me!
