MOLEWATCH

Not much to report again this month, with moles deployed elsewhere, and my own maladies getting in the way. Stay tuned!

THIS MONTH IN HISTORY

July 26, 2007 - Linden Lab announced a ban on in-world gambling. For years before this, gambling was an accepted part of Second Life, with no less than Philip Linden himself making some of the earliest slot machines inworld. Nevertheless, regulations on online gambling forced Linden lab's hand.

Protests sprung up immediately, most notably at the Pooley stage, where scores of gaming machines were deployed and angry casino owners held up signs and banners against the policy change.

The policy has since evolved, with skill gaming being allowed once again in selected areas and with carefully-regulated machines.
