On 3 May, Reporters Without Borders set up an office in Second Life, an Internet-based virtual world in which participants assume the form of “avatars” in order to interact with each other, express themselves and obtain information (at debates, exhibitions, news conferences and so on).
Visitors to the Reporters Without Borders office in Second Life can find all of the organisation’s reports about press freedom news and developments, its awareness campaigns and its agenda of important events.
