Byron Patrick and his firm, Timonium-based KAWG&F, are entering a brave, new virtual world.
Patrick, the firm’s information technology director, has created a presence for KAWG&F on Second Life, an online virtual world that promotes community, networking, socialization and, yes, even business strategy.
“We realized there is a real economy growing in (Second Life),” Patrick said, “and every good economy needs CPAs, so we figured we needed to be there, too.”
Is this just a passing fad? Or is there real business potential in setting up shop in Second Life? Time will tell. What do you think?
