Hi everyone, the virtual world is overtaking the real world nowadays. I would like to introduce to you, "Second Life". Second Life (www.secondlife.com/whatis/) is a 3-D virtual world entirely built and owned by its residents. Since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown explosively and today is inhabited by a total of 3,040,178 people from around the globe. These are the features of Second Life Virtual World: 1. From the moment you enter The World (www.secondlife.com/whatis/world.php) you'll discover a vast digital continent, teaming with people, entertainment, experiences and opportunities. Once you've explored a bit, perhaps you'll find a perfect parcel of land to build your house or business. 2. You'll also be surrounded by the Creations (www.secondlife.com/whatis/creations.php) of your fellow residents. Because residents retain the rights to their digital creations, they can buy,sell and trade with other residents. 3. The Marketplace (www.secondlife.com/whatis/marketplace.php) currently supports million of US dollars in monthly transactions. this commerce is handled with the in-world currency, Linden Dollar, which can be converted to US Dollars at several thriving online currency exchanges. Try to see Second Life, and let's discuss here in the community its pros and cons.
