Swedes to open embassy in Second Life

Virtual 'House of Sweden'

Sweden has announced its intention to be the first nation to have an embassy in Second Life, Reuters reports.

The virtual consulate - based on the country's new embassy in Washington - will be rather brilliantly known as the "House of Sweden". Olle Wastberg, general director of the Swedish Institute, explained: "It will have answers to questions on all aspects of Sweden."

The House of Sweden will open for business in a couple of weeks, so start queuing now if you're desperate to have your meatball queries handled by experts. ®
