New Rocketboomer Doesn’t Envy Journos In Second Life

Joanne Colan, a.k.a Amanda Congdon‘s replacement at Rocketboom, gave Howard Kurtz her thoughts on Sunday’s edition of CNN’s Reliable Sources:

KURTZ: Well, Second Life must be a big deal, because Reuters now has a full-time correspondent covering this virtual world. But I’m wondering if you see more journalists and more politicians getting into this arena?

COLAN: I don’t envy them. I wouldn’t really want to have to sit there, myself, and spend all my time in Second Life, because it’s kind of tiring. You’re aware of your avatar, you’re juggling how to move around. I’m fairly new at it; I’m not very good — I crash into things.

Luckily, Kurtz’ avatar appears to have a handle on walking.
