IBM and Sun developing Virtual Workplace

Well, if you have a home life and a Second Life how can work get a fair shake?  How can you strike a balance?  It seems that Sun and IBM feel that a second worklife is the answer.  While this 3D Office Space is supposed to provide workers a compelling interface for such web 2.0 goodies as wikis and document collaboration, it probably won’t be as easy to generate employee interest without a second paycheck.

Virtual World Intranets… Seriously

The idea is to bring remote workers in Sun’s worldwide offices together into a single embodied space, “where the spacial layout of the 3D world coupled with the immersive audio provides strong cognitive cues that enhance collaboration.”
