I have been wondering for ages what Second Life really is. Today, I signed up for an account with the site.
It is funny, because a couple years ago, I thought that making a site like this would make the creators some serious money. I guess I was right. When logging in through the web, it shows how much money was spent in the past 24 hours. At the time I looked, it was over 1.3 million US dollars!
I have not actually used second life yet, but I am told it is similar to the Sims. The only difference is that it is entirely online. The world is virtually created by it’s members. In it there are real businesses (like IBM) and more. It looks like it could be interesting.
