second life real estate

Anshe Chung is an avatar, or onscreen graphic character, created by a Chinese-born language teacher living near Frankfurt, Germany has proclaimed herself the first second life millionaire. She turned a $10 investment into a million dollar corporation in 30 months. Her corporation now has virtual land and currency holdings worth about $250,000. To handle rampant growth, she just opened a 10-person studio and office in Wuhan, China. Indeed, everything in Second Life is virtual except for the economy.

What for many people starts as an escapism, soon becomes real work.

Wow, second live is insane. I first heard of it on mtv... Is second life bigger then wow?

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
