Second Life in a Few Seconds

What's been happening in the online virtual world Second Life this month? There has been a flood to dramatize the effects of global warming. There has been an ongoing FBI investigation of a casino in Second Life. A memorial for slain Virginia Tech students has also been build in the virtual environment. At the Odyssey Art Gallery, you can even catch philosopher of the simulacrum Jean Baudrillard floating around.

Today my hairdresser reported that one of the salon's clients complained about getting his girlfriend's avatar in Second Life pregnant and needing real money for a virtual abortion.
