Living a Second Life?

Few days ago I posted about Second Life client being released as Free Software.  I have a dual opinion on SL.  On one hand I am amazed by a completely digital world, it’s fascinating for me to think that I’m living something that historians of the future will mark as a ‘first’.

On the other hand I’m not so amazed to actually jump in SL to ‘play’.  The more I read about it the less it is appealing to me…  But then again, probably I’m missing something.

Look at Bob Sutor’s series on SL: why is a important IBM guy spending time and money to buy land on SL to host virtual meetings of his staff? What am I missing?  Should I just try?  Is any Fellow already a SL citizen? Let me know, I’m very curious.
