Congratulations on the online fundraiser!

I recommend sampling other virtual worlds/MMOGs/online communities as each place will have it's own level of tolerance of commercial exploitation and invasion. We are starting to see blatent product placements in video games so I think the tolerance may be on the rise (with each succeeding generation).

Imagine communities centering around sports - since spectator sports are already heavily penetrated by commerical intersts, it would seem "unnatural" to have an online space devoted to sports, but missing the commercial presence.

Following up on something. Not sure if you knew that Second Life's "embedded" reporter has included this gala as a part of a series on folks in SecondLife organizing fundraisers:

I recently updated the numbers on lindensforlife.org, and we've already passed the $3,000 mark. The first $2,000 have already been turned in through my local Relay for Life event. (Thanks, Dave!) I look forward to doing what I can to help further the relationship between Second Life and the American Cancer Society! :) Thanks for your support.
