Outline

The virtual world of Second Life is a permanent 3D online space where users create and develop everything. Using provided content creation tools, participants can create nearly anything they can imagine, collaborating in real-time with other residents. One's digital body, called an "avatar", is a detailed representation that can be customized in many ways. It is a richly expressive aspect of personal identity. Residents are fully immersed in a highly interactive, realistic world covering tens of thousands of acres. Powerful physics simulations make it possible, run on a vast computer network and expanded as more people join in. Residents with 3D content design skills for hire or with virtual land or microcurrency (which can be exchanged for actual currency) and development skills can even launch real businesses in Second Life.
