ooh this has taken me back into my second life avatar; she was much much more sassy and attitudinal than me. far more daring in dress and appearance. She influenced me quite a lot whilst we co-existed. She led me into quite cultural forums and places of learning in that world but also into all sorts of dens of a dubious nature. I particularly recall a more elderly avatar with a laptop asking me my age! Other occupants of my second life explorations were also quite exotic in costume and appendages and behaviour at times. I did not stay in second life for long enough to build property but I liked the design concept although became frustrated by meeting walls with barriers. I ‘did’ second life for educational purposes to find out what all the reports of commercial gain, the virtual campus and locations of learning was coming from.
