Thing Fifteen -- Re-Incarnation
I mentioned in my last post that I had not yet had a chance to try out Second Life. Well, I took the plunge, created an avatar and now am wandering around in a vast amazing world -- and I haven't even made it to the mainland yet! I plan to explore Second Life at least long enough to visit InfoIsland (I think that is what it is called) -- the place when the Second Life library resides. So far, I have learned how to alter my appearance, move around in the world and how to chat and respond to other "residents". I am currently exploring Help Island, learning all I can so that I can function effectively when I move over to the main areas of activity. It has been interesting exploring both the orientation island and now the Help island. Aside from the social networking aspect of Second Life, it is chock full of all sorts of tutorials to help the newbie work their way into society. It is an excellent example of point-of-need information.
