Second Life

Have you ever heard of Second Life? Second Life is an Internet-based virtual world. Users are able to interact with each other through motional avatars. Many users working the project provide the advanced level of a social network. As the network grows it is called a metaverse (as in universe). Users, or what individuals call residents, socialize, participate in individual and group activities, create and trade items (virtual property) and services from one another. This fun phenomenon came to light via mainstream news media in late 2006 and early 2007. Developed by Linden Lab,it is a downloadable client program. Providing hours of fun, it reminds me of Sims, another virtual world popular in the late 90's to early 2000 when computers were a lot slower and not as accessible to the masses as they are today.
