Second life

I signed up for it and was on-line for about two hours today. My wife is using it at work for her emerging technologies course. The library she works at is on-line. Anyone can visit although you have to be a student to fully access the library. It is hoped it will become a valuable way to reach long distance students and such.

The implications of the software are astounding. I thought it was just some thing like the sims but the range of activities is endless. I am thinking of starting a business in the second life world and linking it to my site. I could do a couple of hours a week there and meet potential customers.

You can buy property and build a house. I can even meet my wife on-line for lunch.
