Trinidad & Tobago: The globalisation of Second Life

Trinidad blogger and Second Life player Taran Rampersad looks at Second Life in the context of the global economy: “Issues of Digital Divide are as much of a factor as the dominant cultural trends within SecondLife itself, but as more people come online – more people will enter virtual worlds. And as more people enter virtual worlds, the virtual economies could become less geopolitically dependant and conversely have more geopolitical effect. Is that not globalization?
