I am making some progress in Second Life. Managed to move from Welcome Island to the city where some PLENK2010 classmates arrange meetings.
I was a bit skeptical to Second Life because of Barbie-looking avatars, not having your own name and things that costs money etc.
But I now realize there is lot of advantages too. I am travelling to New York in an few weeks, and Second Life allows me to explore the city before going there IRL. This is New York Ballroom and Jazz Club according to Second Life for example. Seems like a nice place.
By the way, am I allowed to film and take pictures in Second Life? To show the environment to collegues and students?
