Congress Meets Second Life

As if it had a first life.  The House Committee on Energy and Commerce has a Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet.  The members held a virtual hearing yesterday online in Second Life.  The hearing's subject is Online Virtual Worlds:  Applications and Avatars in a User-Generated Medium.  An archived copy of the hearing is at the Subcommittee's web site, and a report of how it proceeded is available in the Washington Post.  How imaginative for an institution that is normally not associated with imagination.
