Rocking Second Life iReports

 

The iReports we've been getting from the virtual realm of Second Life have been always been outstanding, but lately they've been especially great and we just wanted to thank you.

 

iReporter any1gynoid reported on a mixed-reality speech by former President Bill Clinton during the Netroots Nation political activism conference. The event is a real-world conference that also has a Second Life component where people can participate virtually from anywhere around the world. Further venturing into mixed-reality territory, ApolloManga covered the Second Life Community Convention, which is a major annual virtual-reality event that takes place both in San Francisco, California, and in Second Life.

 

But some of the best stories we've seen have been about what people are doing in SL. We heard about a charity race and young voters in SL from iReporter Eradicator, with Justice League Unlimited. His volunteer group seeks to provide protection and community support; its members effectively have become the virtual equivalent of superheroes. HibiscusH told us about an immersive art exhibit designed for survivors of suicide (either those who have attempted suicide or those who know a victim).

 

JaneyBracken has been roaming the digital streets of virtual London, reporting on interesting characters such as one quirky Doctor Who look-alike. She also found virtual guitars that a couple of SL musicians were painstakingly maintaining. Several iReporters, including SL Resident Vickie Maidstone, have helped tell the story of Relay for Life (a huge virtual world charity that is one of the biggest charities out there period) and Woodstock tribute festivals and events. We've also seen virtual Iran protests bringing people together from countries all over, as well as NASA and space sims.

 

We're getting a good window into what goes on in Second Life through these iReports. If you also visit the virtual realm, be sure to share your own story.

Larena,

 

http://www.secondlife.com there's the website for you to sign up at, and then on that webpage you can also download the client from there with your Second Life name that you choose i.e. Larena Secondlife. If you still have problems signing up leave me a p.m. and I will walk you through it.

 

Second Life mirrors real life in many many ways and as a member of the community I certainly have enjoyed it and it has opened my eyes to the world around me and helped me to come to terms in some ways with myself as a person.
