Description: 

The author reflects on the use of some media channels to disseminate information about astronomy. He states that there is a striking absence of regularly maintained blogs hosted by major astronomical institutions. He asserts that social networking sites offer a quick and efficient channel for dissemination of content to a younger audience. He offers information on Second Life, the most popular non-game-based virtual community.
