Second "Life"


From the makers of bottled water...

There is a game out there where (700,000) people just walk around and interact with other agoraphobic avatars. You can get a job, buy sh*t, go to strip clubs.

Is it just me, or does this makes "phone sex" seem quaint?

Among other things that would make you think you were being had, there is a woman who has amassed a (real) fortune by speculating on (virtual) real estate! Beat that, Tripp!

There is also someone who is collecting major dollars by stocking up virtual stores with her virtual clothing line!

I have a feeling I'm 16 months off the curve here, but this is pretty psycho. (On the bright side, playing D&D in the 80's is starting to look like joining the Peace Corps.)

Wiki article.

I've already got my Second Life 3D Video shop ready to go. We'll sell virtual 3D glasses to virtual people, who can pretend to watch virtual 3D movies in Second Life.
Are you in?
Oh, and if you're feeling homesick, Canada Post has launched a Canadian shopping area in SL called Maple Grove. I'm sure the non-people are very polite.
