Second Life down under


BigPond, Australia’s biggest ISP, is about to make a big splash in the online virtual world Second Life.

Thus far it is the biggest and best known Australian corporation to set up a presence there.

The Pond has a distinctly Australian flavour with virtual versions of Oz landmarks like the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Ayers Rock.

Billboards for BigPond appear throughout The Pond and content from its real world offering – video, movies, music and games - has been ported in.

Audio and video clips are quite limited at this stage, but BigPond's Jason Romney said more and more content would be accessible in Second Life once copyright issues had been sorted out.
