It was widely reported in the past few days that there was a security breach in Second Life's user database. That opened up a discussion in the Terra Nova backchannel about whether this was worth reporting here. It seems to me that security breaches are old news and germaine to a security blog; there's nothing inherently virtual worldy about them. On the other hand, I received emails from people claiming that we are SL fanbois for not posting about it. So, OK, we can post about it. Your thoughts?
While we're in an editorial moment, the impression is growing on me that Second Life is Web 2.0 more than anything else. So the question arises, is 3D internet something that Terra Nova should cover?
