Today (November 8) at 4 PM SLT/Pacific, virtual goods expert Susan Wu will be the guest on SmarterTechnology's Second Life show, where she'll speak on "The Internet Economics of Vampire Fun". Fast Company named her one of 2009's 100 most creative people in business, and for good reason: Susan's the founder and CEO of Ohai, a new MMO game developer, and before that, was CMO for the Apache Foundation, VP of Strategy for Opus360, and most recently a partner at Charles River Ventures. (She's even been involved in some SL-related projects.) Even more important, she's a good friend of mine, and one of the smartest people working in virtual worlds and games. Please come if you can, you'll learn a lot about both -- including City of Eternals, her upcoming vampire-themed MMO, which I'll be talking more about here soon.
