Link: Value of Second Life to law firms is over : Real Lawyers Have Blogs. Kevin O'Keefe is right that Second Life isn't ready for prime time; at least, insofar as virtual law offices are concerned. I toyed with Second Life for a while; and, I found it difficult to use, very difficult to navigate, difficult to find property, and difficult to build in. Since it was so labor intensive, it stands to reason that serious hobbyists were the only denizens. In addition, the bandwidth and computer power necessary to support 3D online virtual worlds just doesn't fit with attorney client interaction. When the technology becomes easy to use, and virtual worlds are as easy to navigate in as the real world; then, virtual lawyering in 3D might become a reality. However, don't hold your breath.
