Wow. Japanese Hotel industry using SL to it’s advantage

Okay, cool.

So Second Life has it all. Including it’s own T.V. channels and news shows (yes, it really does.)

However, in looking at it, it looks like they might be on to something here.

Solare Hotels and Resorts Implements Japanese Hotel Industry’s
