VIRTUAL STRIKE AT IBM SECOND LIFE A SUCCESS:
As of tonight, September 28th, the news is that the "virtual strike" at IBM's presence in the Second Life cyberworld was a huge success. The photographs above are from the strike blog at http://ibmslprotest.blogspot.com . This site contains further news of the protest to which IBM has yet to respond officially. At press time 1,853 people and their avatars from across the world had taken part. The strike blog has a number of photos from both the real world and the Second Life site. Well worth looking at.
Many people were apparently unable to sign up for the protest due to technical reasons. For those there is an online petition in support of the Italian workers. See http://www.union-network.org/uniwebmasters.nsf/slibm?openforum . Go there to drop a little line of solidarity with the Italian workers.
