Learn all about Second Life. There are over 200,000 residents (members) from around the world who inhabit this 3-D virtual world. Residents can purchase virtual land or islands; the costs are determined by the size of the land. These land parcels or islands are then used by their residents for their creations, stores and events. Many of the scripting tools used to develop the creations are available for free while others can be purchased from other residents who have developed tools that they sell to fellow residents. Learn how to explore Second Life to locate groups, events, or socialize with others using the Map. Meet other Second Life members by joining an existing group, starting your own group, or looking for other members with similar interests (hobbies, sports, etc.).
