Second Life

We’re talking about using this feature to do an online component to a virtual museum. It will be interesting to see how it might be incorporated into an existing website that runs alongside the museum daily operations. Physical spaces translating into virtual space with rotating exhibits and unique items that could be developed and traded/sold. I’ve only used it myself during spare times but the feel and interface is very easy and development/design friendly.
