The Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds
Wow, that sounds official. And you know what, it actually is! The Federal Consortium for Virtual Worlds is an American initiative from the Information Resource Management (IRM) College of the National Defense University. There role is to ‘ prepare leaders to direct the information component of national power by leveraging information and information technology for strategic advantage’.
Furthermore, it’s a great example of virtual worlds being used in a non-consumer fashion (albeit a little Second Life centric). The media tends to focus pretty much exclusively on KT&T VWs when covering the sector and what a lot of people don’t realise is just how much hard work is going on in B2B and governmental sectors. Roll the (slickly produced) video.
