And, even before they are old enough to purchase real goods through virtual worlds, they will have spent an enormous amount of real money on virtual goods.

The conference was not all about kid-focused worlds, however. Collaboration was a word heard over and over from panelists, speakers and in hallway conversations. With the rising costs of business travel and a desire for corporations to reduce their impact on the environment, the promise of collaboration within virtual worlds will entice more users. With a Digital Nomad workforce, successful companies will need to find new ways to motivate and coordinate their employees”

The conference will be hosted by Wall Street Journal experts Alan Murray, executive editor of Wall Street Journal Online; Kimberley Strassel, editorial board member of The Wall Street Journal; and Jeffrey Ball, environment news editor of The Wall Street Journal.
