Metanomics, the popular in-world speaker series, will feature a panel discussion today at 11:00 AM Second Life time (Pacific) on virtual world banking and the recent Linden Lab banking policy change that effectively ends all unlicensed banking activity in Second Life.
I will be on the panel, along with Jillian Falconi, an Innovation Consultant with Saxo Bank (a real-life Danish bank focusing on foreign exchange trading with a presence in the virtual world), ‘Intlibber Brautigan,’ who runs Ancapistan Capital Exchange, a stock exchange in the virtual world, ‘Travis Ristow’ who runs BCX Bank, an in-world bank that is presumably subject to this policy, and David Talbot, who wrote the article The Fleecing of the Avatars in this month’s edition of MIT’s Technology Review, which some have speculated sparked the timing of the policy, if not the policy itself. As always, Cornell professor Robert Bloomfield will moderate the panel. SLCN will broadcast the event live in-world.
If you won’t be in-world this morning, you can also watch the video when it is added to SLCN’s Metanomics archive, shortly after the conclusion of the event.
[Updated: a video of the panel is now available at SLCN.]
