President Barack Obama's recent visit to Ghana was the first public appearance in official capacity and it was also the most tweeted, facebooked and SMS'ed event so far for his web savvy team.

For the first time, the Metaverse was firmly integrated: Second Life & Metaplace hosted connected viewing parties and a panel discusssion.

Is this the start of a continuous effort by the White House to use virtual worlds as an added layer to their media strategy? Will president 2.o soon enter the virtual realm himself?

Draxtor Despres can't help speculating......
