IMHO the correct term would be "website based news aggregator"
They do have their own reporting staff, et al., and perform a good deal of original reporting. So not really like say a Gizmodo or Boing Boing.

So does Yahoo...yet their real value is in aggregation.

Looks like the Wookie got a bad deal, Sansardollars still run through LL's hands...
Not a bad deal at all. In this sense, LL functions as a service provider that is now responsible for all money issues and Wookey doesn't have to worry about any of it. That's a good deal.

Whatever. The point is, it doesn't invalidate me saying that "It's a website. Covers technology-related news."

I can just keep saying it. The cows never come home on this.
But it's a tech news website for technology news on the internet. :bringit:

Wookey positions Sansar as a new live event destination.
The future of concerts is virtual, they claim.

>> AVAILABLE ON PC & VR

VR is something different from PC? :cautious:

If I understand one of my FFXIV friends, there are actually standalone headsets for VR now? Sort of like a gameboy for VR....

Yeah there's like standalone VR headsets now that don't really qualify as PCs.

I'm actually surprised that the company that bought Sansar is trying to do something with it. I figured they would just use bits of it for other things.

In the age of social distancing, virtual events are quickly becoming A Thing. It's a little delayed, but the new company does have an opportunity to leverage Sansar for stuff like that. It wasn't a mistake on LL's part to sell Sansar when they did but what dreadfully unlucky timing.
