Drexel University sets up shop in cyber space:
This online Drexel universe – which gets 100 visitors daily – exists in Second Life, a program created by San Francisco-based Linden Labs in late 2003. Second Life is used for both academic and social endeavors, with more than eight million users worldwide interacting with one another and buying e-property to develop sites for uses from academic settings such as Drexel’s to a museum promoting artwork.
Looks like the Jesuits won’t be far behind:
Writing in the Italian Jesuit journal La Civilta Cattolica, whose contents are approved by the Vatican, Father Antonio Spadaro has told fellow Catholics that they shouldn’t be wary of venturing into Second Life’s virtual world, arguing that the online alternate universe might be the perfect place to land converts, Reuters reports.
Pretty soon won’t be much of a life left in First Life.
