I've been on the verge of creating a Second Life account for ages now. Some of what goes on in there blows my mind.
From the blog article 'Making Love' - have a surf around the rest of this blog, too
“We stood toe to toe and I wrapped the animation to our [virtual] bodies,”
says Phil. He had to modify the animation to make all the body parts
come together just right. ... And though
this kiss really only involved a depiction of their two animated
characters together onscreen, he says, “[T]he first Second Life kiss
was awesome and special. Just as special as the first in real life.”
Wow. THIS is the kind of emotional engagment that we need to be creating online.
