Tringo makes it to real life!

Tringo is an addictive cross between bingo and tetris that has been all the rage in Second Life the past few months. In fees it has earned the creator more than $4,000 (converting his game earnings to real-life earnings) and now it’s set to hit the real world. In a deal reported on the Wall Street Journal it’s been announced that Kermitt, the creator, has licensed his game to a mobile games developer. What’s amazing about this is the idea that content players create in-game has commercial potential.

This makes one wonder who will be the first fashion designer to see their work on a real catwalk, and who will be the first interior designer to see their furniture in the shop. Second Life contains so many exciting possibilities!

    Q. Won't the book get out of date?
    A. No, O'Reilly ebook owners get updates for free for life as the game changes and I edit the manuscript. Others can register their book at O' for $5.

    Q. Does Toady, the designer, approve?
    A. It was Toady who suggested O'Reilly contact me to write the book when they were looking for an author, and he wrote the foreword. He's a big fan!

    Q. Does Toady get a cut of profits? A. I am making donations to Toady each month based on my own royalties. Toady will also benefit from the donations brought by all the new players!
