Avatars of French Presidential Candidates Campaign

Hosted by

In France, a hotly contested presidential campaign will wind up on April 11.  In the meantime, the candidates are battling it out in the three-dimensional Internet fantasy world Second Life. This parallel universe allows players to construct alter-egos in cartoon form. In France, politicians have discovered what businesses already know: if they build a virtual headquarters in cyberspace, real people will come.  That's according to Molly Moore, Paris Bureau Chief with the Washington Post.
