Real Companies in the Metaverse

Second Life resident Tateru Nino has compiled a list of real world companies operating (to one degree or another) in Second Life, and has posted the list to New World Notes. By her count, there are 139 "mixed-reality" sites (mixed-reality = virtual world + real world). The list includes corporations and companies, as well as non-profits and governmental organizations. She acknowledges the list is not exhaustive, noting in particular the omission of "perhaps hundreds of university/college sites."
