Quick note to let readers know that I’ll be on Robert Bloomfield’s popular metaverse business and policy show Metanomics on Monday, August 4 at 12:00 Noon, Pacific time.  I’ll be appearing at the end of Monday’s show, Open Sim and the Future, to do the op-ed “Connecting the Dots” segment.  I will be focusing on the legal issues raised by Linden Lab’s movement toward a “grid” of interconnected virtual worlds.  The main part of the show will feature IBM’s ‘Zha Ewry’ and Linden Lab’s ‘Zero Linden’ talking to Robert about the progress they have made so far, and the long-term implications of interoperability on “the grid.”

If you miss it live, you’ll be able to catch it later at

    This should be a really interesting show, Ben. I have spent the last week studying this open grid project in detail, and the long-term implications seem staggering. We are going to cut through the technical mumbo-jumbo, so we can get into what this means for IBM, Linden Lab–and especially for residents and developers of virtual worlds.

    Let me add that your readers can see the show live from the web, and even participate in backchat with the guests and Second Life residents. Just go to YOu will have to register on the site to participate in backchat.
