Second Life Collaboration

As a young man the founder of Second Life, Philip Rosedale, desired to create 3D objects from his imagination. He states that the purpose of Second Life is for people to make stuff. The online 3D virtual reality program enables users to build and interact with a world of other users. Second Life is expanding quickly with 20,000 computers connected together in three facilities in the United States assimilating this virtual space. With more than 25o,000 people accessing the site a day and over 100 million members the virtual space has expanded to the size of San Francisco in depth and space. 

Second Life provides infinite possibilities for the users to create objects. The current members have collaborated to create a universe that consists of 100 terabytes of user created data. The members are able to transfer and manipulate data. Second Life is a social network that meets basic human needs. The members have control. They can buy, sell and trade property they create. Each of the 100 million avatars play an important role in the creation, maintenance and improvement of the society. 

"From the moment you enter the World you'll discover a vast digital continent, teeming with people, entertainment, experiences and opportunity. Once you've explored a bit, perhaps you'll find a perfect parcel of land to build your house or business."
