Reuters open SL bureau

“In ‘Second Life,’ we’re making Reuters part of a new generation,” Reuters Chief Executive Tom Glocer said in a statement. “We’re playing an active role in this community by bringing the outside world into ‘Second Life’ and vice versa.”

The above quote from Tim Glocer on the opening of Reuters SL bureau in this CNET piece registered. Over the years I have had the pleasure of meeting Reuters representatives in my travels. What spoke volumes about each was the respect and esteem local people held for Reuters editorial principles and its direct and indirect positive impact on their respective societies. Adam Reuters SL / Adam Pasick RL as Reuters SL bureau chief continues the tradition of pioneering new frontiers. Wishing Adam every success and happiness in his new posting.

When I visited Reuters Atrium for a look around I had an interesting chat (made all the more so by the lag) with a visiting tech reporter who was paid in schekels. She was on an undercover assignment which we had a good laugh about. After complimenting Digi of The Electric Sheep Company on their best work yet IMHO (the inbuilt social networking features and Heads Up Display (HUD) are extremely impressive) I retired to the Blarney Stone where Bruce served up a brew and a tune. RL coverage after the jump from NYT, BBC and the Guardian.

UPDATE : Adam chats with Business Communicators of SL twos weeks into his beat
