Second Life

An introduction to the world of Second Life. It might be helpful if you can view it before class tomorrow. It is not too long, about 4 minutes.

As I watched the youtube video on second life I thought it was more then interesting. I thought it might be a little to much for a virtual element. Although I think its a good idea I guess I cant see how serious people will take it. It seems like a more extended version of the sims. As far as people going on there to view property or products and leave suggestions I guess might be a little to much for me. But I do like the idea of having classes and class discussions on there. That can be interesting and well used. Second life is a interesting social media I just want to see how it will launch its marketing and start to get people to realize that got a chance to live a "second life".

I do have to say that I am fascinated with Second Life. I think that the whole concept of becoming someone else and haveing the opportunity to live free is something that a lot of people wish they could have. Now they have this great opportunity to transform themselves and become who they want in virtual life.

I wish I had the time to get into the groove of being part of Second Life, but I can't see myself seating in front of the computers for hours, since I could tell that it takes time to build your avatar and accommodate it how you want it to be presented to others or how you want it to look. Maybe in the future I could have the opportunity to just seat and enjoy.
