OK, so who’s had a go in Second Life? I’m in, but haven’t spent that much time there yet. My avatar name is Jonn Petrov, if you want to look me up.
Second Life may be a sort of social networking / instant messaging hybrid, but it’s wrapped in a complex 3D graphical interface that makes it harder to use than, say, Facebook. You have to learn how to walk, talk – and fly. You have to stumble around and bump into things, and hope your clothes don’t fall off with an errant mouse click.
For those of you who are feeling your way in the metaverse, this video should be horribly familiar. What if real life was like Second Life..?
