The Seventh Sun, a monthly Second Life publication that I’d somehow overlooked until now (not sure how, it’s actually better than most of what’s out there) is running an interview with ‘Desmond Shang,’ the developer of Second Life’s “Independent State of Caledon.” For more on Caledon, visit the Caledon entry in the SL History wiki. In response to some good questions from interviewer ‘Dreamingen Writer,’ ‘Shang’ discusses covenants, Linden Lab’s gambling ban, in-world legal systems, difficulties in Second Life’s financial sector, and evidence collection in virtual worlds. It’s an interesting interview that covers a lot of ground.
