Can virtual world protests work?

Second Life still has only 25,000 people at a time so one might think that protesting there might have the effect as staging a rally in my hometown of Ada, OK. Yet many of the people in SL are very connected with circles within and without that virtual world and the press has often taken an event in SL and amplified it because of its novelty.

Thanks to Rik and Beth for the heads up on a anti-escalation protest scheduled tomorrow - Monday at 2 pm PST in Second Life - Avatars Against the War! Actions for peace in the Metaverse Jan 27-29.
