ALthough I've never had any interest in Second Life I do see potential in it. You're right though that Second Life is a little to progressive for most people.

I do have a contact at a large oil company (not BP lol!) who found a way of importing 3D (AutoCAD) models of oil drilling platforms in to Second Life. This way he walk on that platform and check its design while at the same time he can save a lot of money because he doesn't need to travel to the platform first. And you can imagine that - as he's taking care of 50 platforms - that saves A LOT of money.

Clever use of Second Life. Shame they're restructuring ...

Harold - thanks for the comments. That's a great example. I understood that it was not very easy to get models into 2nd Life but it sounds like he solved that problem!

Thanks again.

Well, I tried Second Life ages ago, when it's just started and found it very boring. There's no purpose for being there. The world of warcraft, for instance, uses quests as a way to motivate users. (Among other things, of course) As adults many of us tend to be goal-driven, and prefer achieving something even as we play. Can't see what Second Life's got on offer which is of any value...
