…or “I admit, I didn’t pay attention during someone’s BlogTalk presentation today!”
I’ve heard so much about Second Life (from the recreated virtual Dublin city centre to the live concert held there by Duran Duran), and today people were on about it again in the BlogTalk IRC back channel – so I signed up today to give it a go.
Second Life is free to download from secondlife.com; about 25 megabytes or so. My username is really something; no, that’s it – Really Something – so if you see me be sure to say hello! When you register, you get about 50 surnames to choose from, and you can specify your own first name.
Some screenshots below. Unfortunately it crashed my PC twice, not just a soft blue screen thing but it actually caused my Thinkpad to turn off on both occasions. I was trying to alter my appearance to look something like me, replete with balding hairline – not sure how successful I was – especially losing my settings twice 😦 The first picture is from in front of virtual Trinity College; the second picture shows the Spire and the GPO.
