See Wiki:SecondLife and CommunityWiki:SecondLife for a good introduction. It uses the WorldMetaphor.
SecondLife has a private notecard-system, serving for exchanging information. This system cries for getting transformed into a Wiki or at least into personal wikis. So I go to Wiki:WikiEnginesWanted and make a suggestion there, with a backlink to here.
There has been a bit of discussion regarding the business opportunities inherent in providing Foreign Exchange services for Communities such as this. If there is any interest, these thoughts could be collected in a central location in an effort to create a critical mass large enough to trigger some action. -- HansWobbe
When chosing a 'login' for second life, you are prompted to choose false surname. This seems very odd to me, especially as you seem to be expected to remember it. I guess the makers don't believe in the benefits of UseRealNames and this an attempt to actively discourage it. Or maybe there's other reasons behind it. -- HarryWood
Hey Harry, yes that's right. So do you want to start an initiative: RealNamesForSecondLife?. I even suggest to combine it with a WhoIsName?, WhoIsNamesForSecondLife?. I DiiGo and Google this page with all three VirtualTwinPage names and would be happy, if you joined the [DiigoGroupSecondLife]. Or would you prefer, that I take a copy of your contribution into the Diigo group? Or shall we leave your seed contribution first in an incubation state? -- [fridemar]
DiiGo: , ,  Go: [RealNamesForSecondLife], [WhoisName], [WhoisNamesForSecondLife]
