Linden ATM?

I was just looking at a list of virtual worlds and games out there and was looking at Entropia Universe‘s site. It seems like they have a real world debit card available which lets their users withdraw their in world currency as real world cold hard cash from any ATM!

I think that’s a great idea and one which I think Linden Lab should look at doing with their own Linden Dollar in Second Life. How cool would that be!? 🙂 “yeah.. put in on my PrimCard” 😉

Now that’s what I call a flexi friend 😉

    going by their charges it costs 25$ to setup
    3.5$ a month
    3.5$ a transfer to the card
    but a whopping 3.5$ to withdraw and you can only take out 100$

    and its only a debit card

    in addition you have to either continually pay just to stay alive in entropia or else hunt, mine etc etc – its not like SL at all

    i tried it and binned it 😉

    Atlas Venture Capital acquires “The Bank”

    “””The Bank is also announcing a new and innovative service to The Bank customers. World Wide Connect, owned by Lonnie Dagger, has also been purchased by Atlas Venture Capital to provide a Mastercard debit card service to all of The Bank customers. This card will enable people to deposit money into their debit accounts which can then be used with a real life Mastercard to buy lunch, or whatever else they desire, in the real world. There will be no transactions fees for this service, which is bonded by Lloyds of London. This is a first for Second Life and will really change the face of banking in the metaverse.”””

Who is this ‘kosso’ anyway?

I am a 'Createc'. A creative technologist, entrepreneur/ hacker/ geek. Worked on building things on the web for over 12 years.

Used to work at BBC News interactive and created the publishing and delivery systems for video news to get distributed on huge screens in major railway stations around the country.

I left the BBC to become CTO / sole-lead architect/developer at podcast.com for three years.

I have now left them to build a start up a new system called 'Phreadz', which is a 'Social Multimedia Conversation Network', integrating everything that is 'V.I.T.A.L' to us on the web. Video, Images, Text, Audio and Links.

I built the whole thing my myself. I programmed every line of code and positioned every pixel. I'm looking forward to attracting an hiring new members of the team to help me out! :)

There are currently over 1000 happy and helpful beta testers on the system so far and one client of a white-labelled solution.
