Well, college is not for me. I already have a degree, and one is enough. Alas, I shall not be going to classes today. I will, however, be downloading secondlife.
How much I will play, I don't know. I am wondering about the potential of it. I am aware of 2 main things, though. First, the line between virtual reality and real reality is diminishing, and I presume it will pretty much be gone sometime in the 2030s or 40s. I used to think secondlife was for losers, now I think that this sort of thing, whether or not it winds up being called secondlife, will only continue to expand and everyone will eventually embrace virtual life.
Second, it is possible to make money in secondlife. Whatever in-game money you have translates into real money. Literally. I don't know much about it at this point, but that sounds pretty appealing. Perhaps it isn't particularly feasible to make a living on secondlife money at this point, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if it became feasible in the coming years.
So does anyone here play secondlife and have more to tell me about these things?
