Architecture's Second Life
Who wouldn't enjoy the opportunity to change all the things about your life that you most yearn to change? This is the question the designers of Second Life
had in mind when they built their successful massively-multiplayer
online world. Second Life is not premised upon the completion of
quests, doesn't require you to have a job, doesn't demand that you
defeat any alien races or slay any dragons. The whole idea of Second
Life is that you have, well - a second life in all of its minutiae.
Starting with the creation of a new you, the Second Life world offers
opportunities for the designing and construction of virtual clothing lines, virtual cars and yachts, and even virtual villas. There's been loads of hype, so much so, that celebrities make appearances, and big business has taken note.
