The evolution of virtual worlds

Some thoughts on virtual worlds.

I will confess that during my brief exploration of Second Life, the question "what is the point" came occasionally to mind, especially when wandering about the seemingly endless built environment, most of which is both not very attractive and completely empty.

I am also surprised that Second Lifers would want to link to their real world biographies. To the extent that there is a point, the pseudonymity, and the exploration of roles and activities that it allows, would seem to be it.

Hat tip: marginal revolution
