A branch of the railroad runs by my Second Life home. I watch for trains going by, and sometimes I hop right on and visit with the driver. I enjoy my Second Life so much that I think everyone with a computer should try it. It does take a few visits before you will feel comfortable, but here is what you might do. Visit a place that you find on a Secondlife blog, and just stand around and look at the scenery. You will see other people doing that too. And then think to yourself, somebody just like me created all of this landscape. Some people might create, other people might begin roleplaying using the landscape, and other people might take snapshots, or write about what they see. Everybody uses it in their own way. Here is my home on the railroad. And here is another Secondlife blog.
