Should be called "Get a Life"

Is this really what people get up when browsing the Web these days?

Yes there are over 850k people in here now and growing very fast. The digital natives of tomorrow ... our children will think nothing about existing in a virtual world .. so much more expressive than chat rooms.

Go try it ...

Sadly too many kiddies (& some adults too) are happier dwelling in a 2-D world already Andy.

LOL That is exactly the phrase I used when listening to a story on R4 on Monday about Reuters who have actually appointed a news agency partner in Second Life!!! How f**king sad is that?

Sad f'n Life

Man,
What's the point of designing a boat if you can't get laid on it when it comes off the factory floor... Sad...

I am currently building stuff on an IBM Island ... it all looks mad but this is a real commercial world trading a lot of money each day!

http://www.regdeveloper.co.uk/2006/09/21/ibm_secret/

SunMicrosystems have just setup and island ... IBM has many, as do other big IT players. XMEN 3 was even premiered in secondlife ...

Get ya secondlife ribs here ... I will be selling some soon for real money, and the mad thing is people in there will buy them!!!
