US Government Agency in Second Life


Who would have thought the US government was hip enough to use Second Life for spreading educational messages? The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has set up a presence in SL (217, 220, 61) for the express purpose of extending it social message online.

Here is an interview with the John Anderton from the CDC who leads "an initiative to advance public health using new media, to recruit new persons into public health careers, and to reinvigorate old public health brands that have fallen by the wayside." Kudos for someone in the US government who knows how to use the Internet beyond using "THE GOOGLE".
