Join Us For Our Friday Geek Meet To Talk About Second Life Stock Exchanges

Just as in real life, stock exchanges in Second Life bring investors and entrepreneurs together. Today, we'll hear from several SL stock exchanges in a panel discussion moderated by a Cornell University professor.

Just as in real life, stock exchanges in Second Life bring investors and entrepreneurs together. Today, we'll hear from several SL stock exchanges in a panel discussion moderated by a Cornell University professor.

The panel will include representatives of AVIX, WSE, SL Capital Exchange, SL Exchange Commission, the SL Business Bureau, and Mystik Designs, a business represented on WSE. It'll be moderated by Robert Bloomfield, aka Beyers Sellers in Second Life, a professor at Cornell University.

I wasn't involved in putting this together, so I'm curious to hear about this myself. In particular, what I want to know is: If I'm going to invest significant amounts of real money in any business -- in Second Life or outside it -- why would I want to do it in Second Life with Linden Dollars? Wouldn't that make it harder for me to get the protection of the law if things go bad?

The meeting will be today at noon Second Life Time, which is the same as Pacific Time, at the amphitheater at Dr. Dobb's Island..
