Best SL story ever

This Wall Street Journal story today is the best thing I’ve ever read about Second Life, and I’ve read a lot. Maybe I’ll say more about this later, but for now, here, from the story, is the quote of the week, from a woman whose husband spends hours a day “in world,” where his avatar recently married someone else:

“You try to talk to someone or bring them a drink,” she laments, “and they’ll be having sex with a cartoon.”

Further diversion may be found at MKTG Tumblr, and the Consumed Facebook page.

Quite an odd article, but the quote about people not standing too close to each other in the virtual world was pretty fascinating . . .
