Congressional Sub-Committee Meets in Second Life

Thanks to SL Tips for pointing me in the direction of this interesting article in the Washington Post.

Here is a story titled Congress Goes Virtual in Online World Hearing that explains how a sub-committee in congress got together to experience a virtual world.

According to the article:
The Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet wanted to know some basics. Could Second Life be used as a place to launder money? Are children safe in online worlds? Are there churches in there? Are you making any money?
I think they are digging deeper than just the basics but it is a great start. At least they are trying to understand what they are eventually going to regulate (of course they are going to regulate it...just a matter of time.)
