Since I’ve posted the stories about Costa Cruise Lines introducing their latest ship online, so many people have asked me about Second Life that I thought an explanation was in order. My brother Doug turned me on to a great intro article Entrepreneur.com just published.
Read all about it here.
Building brand value with their Second Life introduction, Costa worked together with their Italian ad agency and a company called Virtual Italian Parks. Virtual Italian Parks also created a land inside Second Life called “Parioli” which is a reproduction of an area in Rome.
What’s so interesting is how the guys from Virtual Italian Parks list their Second Life Avatar name in their contact info:
CEO – Amministratore Unico
Ing. Bruno Cerboni
Second Life: Bruno Echegaray
Second Life: Josephine Skall
Costa Cruise Line held the inauguration of their newest ship, The Serena, over the weekend. What’s cool is that they did a simultaneous virtual inauguration on Second Life. And from what we saw, tons of people (Avatars) showed up. The DJ party in the disco was packed!!!
When I sit in meetings, I doodle. And mostly what I draw are caricatures of the people I’m meeting with.
To share my drawings, I’ve started a new blog called TurkelDoodles where I post my drawings and link them to my subjects’ sites.
Some of my recent caricatures on the blog include Glen Senk, the president of Anthropologie; George Soros; Jorge Lomonaco, (at right) the counsel general of Mexico; and Peter Diamandis, the brains behind the X-Prize.
Come take a look, scroll through the index of caricatures, and see if you—or anyone you know—has made the list.
