Gov Mark Warner Apart from being the first US politician to publicly create a character in secondLife, the former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner will be announcing the first-ever “virtual town hall on American politics,” scheduled for later this year.

“In Second Life,” said Warner, “distances and time differences vanish. It will allow us to reach people through a whole new medium. Social technologies can be great tools for political change, and virtual worlds like Second Life might be the next tool for engaging people in the real world democratic process. We want to use Second Life to continue the conversation about the direction of our country. My avatar is also pretty funny looking. That alone makes it worth checking out.”
