We recently discovered it and are fascinated with the possibilities. Communities form there and build their own projects (virtually). It would be fun to see a cohousing group use it for virtual meeting space with everyone's Avatar in attendance...and then the design/build type people could create a virtual project on land the group could buy. (for very little) You could actually try out a lot of things in designing the social and governance side of a group. We want to use it for virtual classrooms. The technology seems to have come from the gaming world but this is far from a game and seems to be the way of the future. Computers older than a couple of years may have some problems gaining full functionality. Mine had trouble until I got more memory. Anyway...I am forming a group there called Sociocracy. I did a search in Second Life to see if there were any places or groups with cohousing in the name and ....not yet...so who will be the first to take this leap? This is the web site where you can learn more about Second Life and download the program to explore this new world. www.secondlife.com If you do go there and want a friend to look up..my name there is Maggie Nagy...just say you are a cohouser.
