Second Life (SL) is a 3-D virtual world established by Linden Labs in 2003i. There are currently more than 14 million registered second life accounts but the size of the active user base of second life is a matter of some debate with 30 – 50,000 users usually logged in at anyone time. To start using second life you must create an account at www.secondlife.com the website where you will also find the SL installer application which is required to enter SL or go ‘in world’.
