    @TGJerusalem:

    Come to Extropia! We’re hosting the NASA Future Forum today, the Editor in Chief of American Anthropologist tomorrow, the head of NASA’s virtuality efforts on Saturday – and that’s just this week!

    We’re on the web here, or search for “Extropia” in SL.

    @Lobster:

    Can I go populate the surrounding area with simulated mutated wildlife?

    Yes. I just ask that you be careful and don’t litter.

    Has anyone built an SL client that doesn’t require an insane (AKA I can’t justify it in the family budget)graphics card?

    We also have medical simulations in Second Life. http://scienceroll.com/2007/08/09/live-blogging-today-first-medical-simulation-in-second-life/

    And a scientific conference series, the “Scifoo lives on” sessions:

    There’s also a 3D organic chemistry quiz at Scifoo Lives On:

    This is extremely cool.

    I’m going to have to check these out when I get home. I admit, as severely cool as the idea behind it is, I’ve never been able to really get into Second Life, mostly because all I ever seem to be able to find are empty stores and porn.

    I’m sure there are fun and interesting things to do and see and people to meet, I just wish I knew where to find them.

    Why yes, #3, there was a text-based client for Second Life. :)

    For God’s sake PLEASE spare us any more non-news from Second Life — the land of non-people who waste their lives doing non-things because they loathe themselves too much to turn off the damned PC and go outside now and then.
