Virtual Consulting on the Rise

Olga Kharif

We all hire people -- doctors, career counselors, speech instructors -- to help us get ahead in real life. But it appears that now people are starting to hire consultants to help their virtual representations get ahead in virtual worlds, too.

This article says that such consultants are quite in demand by gamers in Warcraft. For people who actually want to make money on Second Life real estate, there are consultants to go to for that, also. Crazy, but true. I wonder just how big this virtual consulting business can get, and how soon? Will we see a rise of virtual Gartners, IDCs, and Forresters?
