OK, I totally admit it. I only understand the theories behind Second Life and the broader "Metaverse"—but I haven't experienced it first hand for myself. I've seen pictures, videos and of course read all about it (how can you escape it?). I'll try it out someday as I believe that experience is the best teacher. But until then, here's an observation. After watching this video of Leo Burnett Detroit's Holiday musical, I have to say that SL avatars freeeak me out. I had no idea how creepy they can look—especially when they do 80's rap-induced dance moves. How come nobody filled me in on this little detail?? SL people out there, how do you get past this?
OK, feel free to bash me for being so "behind the times". Someday I'll get my second life—you just won't catch me dancing in it. :)
