Second Life overview

Second Life is a 3D virtual world entirely built and owned by its residents. Since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown explosively, and today is inhabited by a total of 5,145,919 people from around the globe.

From the moment you enter the World you'll discover a vast digital continent, teeming with people, entertainment, experiences, and opportunity. Once you've explored a bit, perhaps you'll find a perfect parcel of land to build your house or business. You'll also be surrounded by the creations of your fellow residents. Because residents retain the rights to their digital creations, they can buy, sell, and trade with other residents.

The Marketplace currently supports millions of US dollars in monthly transactions. This commerce is handled with the in-world unit-of-trade, the Linden dollar, which can be converted to US dollars at several thriving online Linden Dollar exchanges.

Linden Lab is Aiding and Abetting Criminal Activity: Millions of real life dollars are siphoned from the Second Life music community yearly....without any royalties paid to rightful copyright owners for use of their material...nor are there any real life taxes imposed....all the while....Linden Lab profits from transfer fees for out-going/laundered money.....and music venues wish to act like hotshots while they harbor entertainers who think they are above the law and avoid paying federal taxes on millions of virtual world (Second Life) income. Some people believe real life regulations stop at the log in screen entering Second Life When you speak out against corruption in Second Life....they attempt to flip it around...make you out to be the bad guy...YOU are the criminal.......your name entered into ban list all around the grid. Second Life has become an evil empire full of corruption, greed and trolls....There are much better things to do than to consolidate yourself with a bunch of a--holes. Department of the Treasury - Internal Revenue https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f3949a.pdf Youtube: https://youtu.be/UIIEnmt5ZAM Robert69 Little - Winner of AVI Choice Award (May 2016) https://youtu.be/LFd0Kl_MvzE A lot of real life money revolves around virtual world music venues....hiring of entertainers ($20.00 per hour...sometimes a lot more than that.....plus tips.........some earning up to and well over $400.00 per week in real life income)....dance animations, guitars, pianos, drum sets....etc....venues furniture....blah, blah, blah. It cost money to buy virtual world lindens (money) and then it cost again to transfer lindens (money) back out into the real world. Linden Lab does NOT publicize "live music" events in Second Life by way of videos. I would assume this is a way to keep their money laundering operation under wraps. https://secondlife.com/my/community/events/?lang=en-US BBB- Linden Lab Reviews: https://www.bbb.org/us/ca/san-francisco/profile/online-gaming/linden-lab-1116-57373/customer-reviews Tweets to Phillip Rosedale and Ebbe Altbert of Second Life https://youtu.be/rq9uUKrXFz0 I don't believe I've ever run across a bigger loud mouth, egoistic con-artist in all my life.....truly sickening.....: Seth Regan aka "Mankind Tracer" http://www.slenquirer.com/2021/01/spotlight-on-seth-regan-aka-mankind.html#comment-form Linden Lab is Aiding and Abetting Criminal Activity - Part 2 https://youtu.be/dQIfAcfKl7A Linden Lab - What Part Of Corruption Is Not Visible https://youtu.be/W3YPaRLa2oQ Scams are endless in Second Life...: were there is money.....people will do just about anything to get their hands on it.

Why should Linden Lab complain....they're making a profit off money transfer fees.

Reminds me of V-World on the Caprica TV series (60 years prior to Battlestar Galactica)! Although it is not half as good. :P

I just wanted to leave a comment and say I enjoy messing around with Secondlife at times i really don't use it on a regular basis, but it's fun to explore. I wanted to also say how impressed i am to say my retina macbook pro late 2013 13" does really well on the graphics with the iris graphics. So far no slow downs and great detail. it only starts to really show a noticeable slow down on ultra but it's not huge so i put it back down on high. it also depends on the environment it seems as to how graphics are effected. I'm not much of a gamer though, i work with video and other forms of media for the most part. I've tried second life on my 2005 eMac back in 2005 the radeon 9600 card wasn't too bad but it was certainly slower. my white macbook wasn't the best when i tried it as the intel graphics back then weren't a gaming card, now i have it on this retina MBP and i think this has been the best i've seen it. I also noticed the fan is well controlled too it runs when it has to then slows down to silent again.
