secondlife has a new dedicated newspaper The AvaSTAR- itSreal

A German media company called Bild.T-Online AG & Co. KG is hoping to draw in some ad dollars for its New secondlife Newspaper, currently it is free but they hope to put it on sale after the launch period for L$150 (SGD 0.83), they also promote that-they will pay Linden dollars for actually BIG Linden dollars for your stories. With Reuters as a permanent resident they have competition but I think they are on a winner if they stay the distance.

My review of AvaStar

Have just read almost from front cover to back of Issue 3…its an interesting read but it needs something more….for me maybe a true Business Section instead of play-land SL, needs to be introduced…especially to get the BIG BUCKS from corporate advertisers, there must also be NEW recruitment (recruit.net) opportunities and business collaborations available with secondlife’s growing importance that could be reported on in detail, AvaStar has enormous potential if it has more real world reporting on secondlife activities – itSreal

    I agree I would like to see more news on activities. Great reporting on genuinely worthwhile activities would definitely be a welcome addition to the magazine.

    As far as charging L$150… hmmm…. not sure that will take off. I would certainly not buy it and that is specially true for someone who has yet to see the magazine. I beleive, if they want to make a buck, they will have to stick to the advertising business model.
