Reuters pulls correspondent from Second Life

Reuters News editor-in-chief David Schlesinger might be upbeat about the future of journalism - but that hasn't stopped one Reuters bureau from closing its doors.

Tech website The Register has done some digging and found that Adam Pasick, Reuters' correspondent in virtual world Second Life, hasn't filed a story in months.

"We're still reporting on Second Life, but only as part of our usual tech and media coverage," a Reuters spokeswoman tells the site.

"As a company we're still committed to Second Life. We're maintaining our corporate presence."
