My Virtual Life: Business Week Cover Story

Speaking of virtual real estate, has anyone read the article in Business Week: May 1:
Virtual World, Real Money? Reader Reports:

Oh, now this is fascinating and can't wait to get personally involved.

Anyone else involved in Second Life? I'm thinking of making Felidae Isle a virtual isle for my frolicking pussy cats. Please let inquiring minds know what to expect because this is truly awesome -and I refrain from using that word "awesome" but it's a bitchin concept that could probably screw with my head in ways I haven't conceived.

Opinions?

I vaguely remember seeing something about this quite some time ago. (The marketplace part of the concept and the Linden dollars.) I have sent an email to Alan to see what he knows about it and to have him look it over. Interesting!

I asked Alan about Second Life. He wrote a blog entry about it. Here is the link. http://www.artificiallives.com/polarblog/?eid=486
It helped me understnad it better than just going to the site and trying to figure out what it was all about. Looks really fun, but I don't know if I have enough time for real life and a virtual life. I already have this other creative life going on in my head even in my sleep!
