Second Life

OK, here's the creepiest trend I've heard about in a long time.

I caught the promo on NPR on the radio this evening. Apparently, it's a chance for middle-aged ladies who are unhappy with their lives to go back and get a virtual do-over--not a make-over but a do-over.

One more piece of evidence that Snow Crash has elements that are not just science fiction but prophecy.

Update: Somehow I got the wrong URL in the promo link above and sent people off to Sheepcrib. By all means, check out Sheepcrib, but it doesn't have anything relating to Second Life.

Error fixed, and I'm feeling sheepish.
