Meet IBM's new-tech guru in Second Life

The public is invited to listen to and participate in a CNET News.com interview of Irving Wladawsky-Berger, IBM's vice president of technical strategy and innovation, in the Second Life virtual realm.

The interview is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. PDT (and Second Life time) Tuesday, Dec. 12, at CNET's Second Life office. Second Life users can find the site by searching for "CNET Networks" and teleporting, or can click on this SLURL, which will bring up a browser offering teleport to the CNET Second Life office. The interview is in the auditorium on the third floor of the CNET office, and the easiest way to get in is to fly to the open balcony to the right of the building's main entrance.

Wladawksy-Berger over the years has overseen the launch of IBM initiatives in e-commerce, Linux and open-source software, and on-demand computing. He also leads the company's university relations office.
