Second Life: Bank Run, Minted Coins

After two unseasonably intense but fun 80-hour weeks at work, I'm back to our regular programming. Apologies for the outage; my only hope is that most of you are on well-deserved vacations.

Anyway, two pieces of news from Second Life. The first is that Ginko Financial, a virtual bank that lured customers with a promise of 44% annualized interest, had experienced a bank run and has shut its doors. The Age has the story.

On a brighter side, an owner of a private SL island has minted his own very real coins (pictured above). Via
