Second Life Millions

I feel so timely. Two posts on SecondLife and then I read this - the first SecondLife Millionaire has been minted. It won't be long till we see real virtual philanthropy.

One lovely irony - the first real life millionaire minted in SecondLife made her money buying, developing, and selling the oldest (and realest) asset - real estate.

Which provides us with a great opportunity - if SecondLife allows us to try things we might not otherwise risk, what roles will philanthropy come to play? What might foundations do differently? What giving structures, patterns, practices, motivations might emerge? Anyone want to try?
