"Second Life (abbreviated as SL) is an Internet-based virtual world which came to international attention via mainstream news media in late 2006 and early 2007. Developed by Linden Lab, a downloadable client program enables its users, called "Residents", to interact with each other through motional avatars, providing an advanced level of a social network service combined with general aspects of a metaverse. Residents can explore, meet other Residents, socialize, participate in individual and group activities, create and trade items (virtual property) and services from one another."

(Details see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Life)

Did you ever try it?

It's 100% pure crap. It's like the Sims without a game and horrible 1997 graphics. It also creashes every 20 minutes and it's laggy. Full of paederasts and virtual porn addicts. They are all posers and their motto is "buy buy buy". The whole thing is capitalism on crack. It's for people who want to be nerds (but are too stupid)

I went there because my boss said it's the next big thing (aka: hype) and the future e-commerce platform. I lauhged a lot, when I saw it.

However, it's so BAAAAD we should all register (it's free!) and use it for a virtual meeting - like a chatroom, but even more embarrasing. I bet even Poly has it already.

I don't want a second life, there's enough going on in this one.

it's a hype indeed, and i've never been there. The corporate world is starting to see this as a great playground to test out new products, governments are going online and what not.

So professionally I have to be there as well. So I'm in!

Second life is a crappy 3D chat room. I think the name "Second" life is deceptive as it implies that the people who use it had a first one.

Is moving from a crappy 2D forum to a 3D chatrum a step ahead?

I think it is a place for people with weird porn fetishes.

I am trying to have a 1st life (After physics and video games and standard internet), I don't have time for a 2nd life.

Washing the car, watching TV, gardening (Nav), playing virtual guitars (oops, sorry), discussing football, cleaning windows, listening to the polka jamboree, writing a letter to the newspaper, checking the stock market, rocking - in your rocking chair.

Just now I got an invite from some crappy congres organiser about a congres on second life!! :D

-What real chances are there in the virtual world?
-How do consumers behave virtually
-what can you do to be ready for marketing in 3D virtual worlds when all your customers are there as well?

I told you it sucks. Let's meet somewhere there.

"Fortuna" is a nice place

Use "Maps", search for "fortuna" and then select "Teleport"

I'm Clay Clary

Drekkus
25-05-2007, 10:24:26
WTF??? I seem to have a female body, even when i selected male.

Where the fuck can I find some information on how to chance my profile and get some clothing??

C.G.B. Spender
25-05-2007, 10:25:12
Let's get married

Drekkus
25-05-2007, 10:43:09
OK, SL now officially sucks. No information on how to change your profile, logged out and can't log in. I'm done.

C.G.B. Spender
25-05-2007, 10:45:02
Haha! Try it again in a week or two and you'll see: it's still the same crap!

25-05-2007, 10:46:25
Sometimes it helps to log out ...

Tizzy
25-05-2007, 10:48:20
Log out and return to real life?

Drekkus
25-05-2007, 10:48:52
hmm, apparantly it does help. tried it one last time and now I'm logged in and I could select an avatar.

I had a little go a while back. I got a pretty sweet afro and someone gave me a DEVO tshirt. (Second) Life was good. Then I ran out of things to do, got bored, and never felt inclined to load it up again.

I deleted it when I realised that every time I used it it save a massive 500 meg file of nothing to my harddrive for no apparant reason, just eating it up.
