A few days ago, I discovered Second Life. Second Life is an online virtual world in which participants can do anything from change the way they look to create all sorts of items and actions to buying and developing on virtual real estate — there is an economic model that trades SL money for real us $ (both directions!) and people can and are earning hundreds of thousands of real us $ in their virtual businesses… and it’s free to use at the basic level.
I’m doing my best to just be circumspect about the whole thing, and let it wash over me like a curiosity. It’d be so easy to just dive in and become immersed in the social and life-attainment aspects.
Somebody save me.
