I am now owner of a plot of land in Second Life, 4096 sq meters on a new sim called “Sciences”, one of the NMC Educational Communities (land that is parceled and rented to educational organizations).
As of tonight I have spent extensive amount of time walking the green carpet and tossing out objects.
Actually I was there for about 20 minutes. Seriously (or semi-seriously), I have been involved in Second Life since March 2006, but mostly in a role of working with our NMC events, managing media, and running group activities. I have not really built anything, thought I like to boast about the quality of my plywood cubes. I have tinkered a bit with some scripting.
But now I have a space to tinker, to express, or just to mess around in. There is an intoxicating allure of this as some virtual level of power?? Maybe, maybe not.
So I am mulling over what to do here. And no, I am not going to erect a dog house, or anything really in that metaphor vein. But I am stretching for ideas… either that, or I am going shopping.
