Fortune: Why tech leaders think Second Life could be a gold mine. - Jan. 22, 2007

 Interesting Second Life factoids (although perhaps needing confirmation, since they, e.g., got Ray Ozzie's title wrong).

The company's backers include some of the world's smartest, richest, and most successful tech entrepreneurs. The chairman and first big outside investor is Mitch Kapor, creator of Lotus 1-2-3, the spreadsheet application that helped begin the PC software revolution. Other investors include eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, Amazon (Charts) CEO Jeff Bezos, and Microsoft chief technology architect (and inventor of Lotus Notes) Ray Ozzie - each credited with a seminal networked product of our age.
