Newt Gingrich In Second Life

September 18th, 2007 | Category: Politics

Newt Gingrich may be attempting to start his second life in politics in Second Life when he holds some workshops in the SL version of the White House, Second Life URL to come, this September.

When: September 27 at 2pm ET

Where: White House Second Life

In his weekly column published today, Gingrich states Second Life, “is so compelling that people actually spend real money to buy real estate in this online reality. The Swedish government actually has an embassy in Second Life.”

So as Gingrich gets set to potentially begin his second life in American politics, he will rent the West front of the Second Life version of the U.S. Capitol on Sept. 27 for some of his workshops.

There’s symbolism in Gingrich’s decision, since Sept. 27 is the 13th anniversary of the Contract With America, which Gingrich and other GOP lawmakers signed on the West front of the real U.S. Capitol. Source: Gingrich In Second Life

Speaking of politics, that article mentioned Mark Warner being the first major politician to enter SL, and I thought, who cares, but here is the video anyway.
