Google To Expel Avatars from Virtual Eden

For those who have read the Book of Genesis, you remember that the world was created in six days, with the seventh day reserved for rest and contemplation.
For those of you who are following the developing 'Book of Google,' you will note that it took just six months to create and subsequently destroy the (virtual) world of Lively.
A post on the Official Google Blog broke the sad news.
"Google has always been supportive of this kind of experimentation because we believe it's the best way to create groundbreaking products that make a difference to people's lives. But we've also always accepted that when you take these kinds of risks not every bet is going to pay off."
Lively will be shut down at the end of the year, as Google "prioritizes their resources" to focus on their core search, advertising and applications businesses.

No word yet from the Avatars that will be forced to leave their virtual paradise.
