Hmmm. Can’t see myself getting into this one. As other people have commented, it’s hard enough finding time to do what you have to in your real life. Had a good laugh at www.getafirstlife.com though.
I guess it would have a greater appeal to people who are into this kind of gaming – most likely younger people – so I suppose I should try and get over my reticence. However I’m struggling with just how much learning/time would have to go into it in order to get anything that I see as valuable out of it. Unlike most of the other web 2.0 tools that we have covered which I have quickly seen uses for and acted on, second life seems like it would take a big commitment before you get the rewards. Of course, without having actually tried, I’m not really in the position to say…but I can’t see myself trying in the near future.
