Anyone on here on Second Life? (www.secondlife.com)
Anyone WANT to be on Second Life?
Anyone even know what Second Life is?
I have only just started hearing about it. Caught a reference to it on some comedy show a few nights ago. Family Guy, maybe? Anyway, it sounds interesting. I've been meaning to look it up online. I'm a little afraid, though. If I now find an addictive game that increases my computer time, my S.O. is going to have a conniption! And I was addicted to Bejeweled and No Mess for ages!!
So.... gotta link?
It has been compared to The Sims, but it's not really close. It's like an alternate reality... part surrealist painting, part Matrix, part cyberspace. Things called "avatars" are controlled by real people and move around, hang out, and most importantly create things.
The world's basically a blank canvas for people to create whoever or whatever they want.
It's free to try out and play, you only have to pay into it if you want to own land (which isn't necessary at all) or go on an extended shopping spree (although there's a ton of free stuff everywhere, free clothing, etc).
Lots of business opportunities in there, too (think the WWW circa 1995).
If any of you stumble into there, my avatar name is Lordfly Digeridoo, if I have time I can guide you around a bit
