German Media House wants to start tabloid in SL
Eric rants about an article in the Guardian where they claim Axel Springer will start the first tabloid in SL. Which of course is not true as Eric states.
It does make more sense in German –
as this is going to be the first German thing in SL afaik. (make that in English – which makes a lot more sense). And just for the record: If I hear anybody using “look at me! look at me! I am first! I am first!” again I think I am going to loose it.
The *real* news in this is not that it is the first tabloid but the background behind it. Bild is comparable I think to the british Sun and I do not know what the US equivilent is to it – a HUGE media house in Europe. Them getting into SL and using their basic knowledge of everyday work to build a professional tabloid – not in content probably but in production.
Don’t get me wrong – the Second Life Herald surely is nice but we are talking different leagues here and different interest groups.
Let me put the German hat on again for a minute, because that is the real thing: Second Life is getting hyped in Germany quite a lot. Dozens of articles, reportage in the news – much more than blogging and even more than podcasting.
As I was considering blogging more about Second Life, the first reaction of mine actually was to do that completely in German. :)
