Just when I thought my first life was diverse enough, I am now getting a Second Life. Second Life is a virtual world, but its way beyond a game. Many businesses including Reuters, Disney, Sun, Toyota and others have conducted business there, even ALA has office space there.
I got interested because of the creation of Info Island, which is run by the Alliance Library System. They have a virtual library, where anyone can walk in and look at e-books, try out databases, ask questions and much more. With the recent establishment of an Australian Libraries building, things are getting even more intriguing.
If you are in Second Life, let me know your SL name and I will watch for you too. In the meantime, I have to practice flying and teleporting. Good thing my avatar has a hard head and can breathe underwater!
