Called "the biggest digital art installation in the world" (Warren Ellis),
Second Life is a highly imaginative, online, 3-D rendered environment
populated with avatars (graphic representations of people). In Second Life
you can teleport, fly, live in a house, go to clubs, take classes, make and
view art, or just "hang out." You cannot drown and you do not age. Spanning
more than 42,000 acres in real-world scale--larger than metropolitan
Boston--Second Life is second home to over 2 million "residents," many of
whom collaboratively create its content. It is a place where real business
is conducted using virtual dollars that can also be traded in the real
world. Join us during the Boston Cyberarts Festival for a discussion about
the creative, social and economic implications of Second Life.
