Clickable Culture - IBM Cells Virtual-World Severs

"With IBM's involvement in Second Life, I wouldn't be surprised if the next major version of Linden Lab's virtual world was built atop the 'gameframe' platform. That might solve many of the crippling technical limitations the current platform suffers from, such as the inability to stuff more than several dozen avatars into the same space. There's even a glimmer of hope for a smaller environmental footprint, as Gelardi stressed to 3pointD 'the mainframe architecture should make running virtual worlds more energy-efficient.'"
