What is Second Life?

Second Life is an online virtual world created and built by its residents.  The international community features a huge assortment of diverse lands and people, vibrant entertainment and opportunity, and a new world of experiences.  An avatar, or virtual alter ego, is created by each participant and then whisked to a beginner island which explains, teaches, and nurtures the new Second Life user.  Beyond the first island lays a plethora of lands, as unique as the real world.  From entrepreneurs to educators to artists, everyone can find a group of friends who share similar interests and ideology.
