A first look at a Second Life

This is a brief summary of Second Life from an innovation report that I wrote a while back in  2006. It covers Second Life as both a game, a genuine alternate reality and a potential business and learning opportunity. Whilst some of the statistics might be a little out of date now ( it was written before people like Telstra and the ABC from Australia came onto the scene) it’s still a useful summary for those wishing to get their heads around SL and what all the fuss is about.

PS> having just checked how this loads onto the page, it appears that the font is a little tiny for the average peeper. The best thing to do is probably click through the Slideshare link on the bottom and watch it on Slideshow in Full Screen. Unless you have very good eyes…
