Concept is great! We all love to get away most of the time. Unfortunately the program/game quality is very poor.

there is a new virtual world today called second life. it is a 3-d virtual world built and owned by its residents. since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown explosively and today is inhabited by a total of 2,972,641 people from around the globe. i thought it was a western phenomenon until i came across some chinese and koreans as well.

some key features
virtual career, real money: some people have even left their real jobs to be in second life fulltime, earning money from their virtual world. the currency is linden dollars (about 270 linden dollars to 1 usd). you will get paid via paypal or some other medium.

virtual pickups: yes you can pick up any of the residents in second life. the only problem is they may be nowhere near where you are physically present.

virtual meetings: your company can potentially conduct board meetings or market your products in this virtual world.

and probably the most important thing is, you can be anyone what you want to be in this virtual world.

From what i have seen, this is actually just an online version of Sims. About those people earning real money, expect those things to fade as people realize that the real thing is better than a virtual simulation. This is just a bubble waiting to burst.

I tried downloading it... But it didnt really work with my PC. It looks really fun, though. I heard a lot more companies are looking into it- trying to get their products into second life.

I particularly liked choosing my SL name... :) Funny names to choose from...

Although I've not signed-up for Second Life, I don't think the bubble will burst. In fact I don't think there is a bubble. Second Life had been in existence and in constant software upgrades and user growth even before the currrent hype fueled by a few articles in Wired and other weekly magazines.

I think this is no more than another MMORPG. It has a different flavor and not as "adventure" driven as othe MMORPGs.

As for the people making money in it...well, there will always be people making money off these types of online communities. After all, a lot of people are too lazy or not tech-savvy enough, or don't want to spend all their time online building up their characters or designing their clothes, houses, etc. Some people would rather just pay someone to do it all for them as a short cut.

But yeah, real life is actually more fun.
