My friend David sent me a link to a News.com story about Second Life, the virtual world that's engaging the interest of so many digerati. Seems like not only is there virtual dating going on there--there's virtual sex--including activities involving adults pretending to be children--mostly happening in private--not public--areas of the site.
My notable quote in the story comes from David Fleck, the marketing VP, who said: " The other thing to remember about 'Second Life' is that it is a free-form canvass. You can do what you want, and be what you want, and that's what attracts people. "

Blog-EFL, which covers e-learning tools for language teaching, flags an interesting phenomenon occurring in Second Life, in which the presence of a celebrity (in this case it?s podcaster Adam Curry) has galvanized a community of residents in the virtual world, as well as a small-scale land rush as fanbois people vie to set up shop near the home of the star. Not so different from the real world, perhaps, although such trends become apparent far more quickly in SL, which could lead to some interesting applications
... i'm not sure how i feel about moving the realestate profit motive into VR.  Sure out attention is galvanized by kewl celebrities ... let that be ... let people huddle around them, fine ... but profit by building near them ? .... that seems like something that should be discouraged ... that seems like spam in some other guize. 

Now let me think out loud about my conception of how VR could work.  If i tag an item "adam curry", then it appears in his room ... that is free ... nobody should be able to charge me a fee to tag my item into his proximity.  Once tagged into his room my own authored item looms small or large ... distant or proximate ... according to it's pertinance to that exact room and my reputation.   Not so easy to make all of that work ... i suppose it is easier for the owners of the land to just charge my card ... hurrumph

Where am I really?

I'm in real life and in Second Life.

I'm in Second Life watching real life.

Panelists are speaking and we are listening.

In Second Life and IRC, we are talking about what the speakers are talking about.
