Seriously. This gets weirder.
Thomson Reuters, you may recall, yesterday announced the closure of their Second Life bureau, which actually closed up shop five months ago. Technically that was actually their second announcement, having already announced it elsewhere some months ago. Now the old island is still there, and nobody's turned the lights off yet, but what's really odd is that Thomson Reuters appears to be in the throes of preparing a new Thomson Reuters island in Linden Lab's virtual environment.
Actually, the island was (until just recently) Thomson Scientific island. It's just recently been renamed to Thomson Reuters, and the Thomson Scientific trappings have been replaced throughout with Thomson Reuters branding and advertising -- though most of the Scientific division's structures and facilities are still there, like the drug laboratory.
