Your SciEye correspondent previously covered the House Subcommittee on Telecommunication & Internet hearing in SL April 2008 in my initial story yesterday.

Today, Rep. Ed Markey’s [D-MA] office responded to my followup questions about response to the SL hearing:
Is Rep. Markey the 1st legislator into SL and/or any VW [virtual world] in an official capacity at a real-world event? Can u give me old boilerplate about him at Bali, and what that event was? The reaction from Congresspeople to your office about this event’s usefulness as a technology demonstrator to them? His future VW plans? His thoughts about VWs and their utility to Congress? Has he stopped doing [semantically loaded phrase about Bad Things]? :)

Jessica Schafer, Communications Director, replied to me:  Answers to your follow up questions:

Is Rep. Markey the 1st legislator into SL and/or any VW [virtual world] in an official capacity at a real-world event?
Rep. Markey isn’t the first legislator in SL — Rep. George Miller made an address from the Virtual Capitol floor and former Governor Mark Warner (as a presidential candidate) did a SL interview — but this was the first Congressional hearing simulcast in SL.
