I really enjoyed my Second Life appearance on “Government’s Place in Virtual Worlds and Online Communities,” which was hosted by Metanomics.  You can watch the entire segment on the Metanomics site.  But the folks at Metanomics have also posted 6 clips from the show at YouTube that highlight some of the topics we discussed.  Here’s the list of clips and the videos:

Part 1: Are the Feds about to Regulate Second Life & Virtual Worlds?

Part 2: Global Communities, Local Values, Internet Governance & The Dangers of “Harmonization”

Part 3:  Virtual Child Pornography & Our Virtual Reality Future

Part 4: Why Speech Controls & Privacy Regulations are Two Sides of the Same Coin

Part 5: Privacy, Advertising, User Empowerment, and the “Free” Internet

Part 6: Virtual World Self-Governance and a “Utopia of Utopias”

Finally, here’s some of the background material I referenced during the show:
