Slide 2: Residents and Avatars In Second Life, the term Resident is applied to “people who have a stake in the world.” However, the term is not generally applied under the following conditions: People who have only created an account, but never logged in People who have had accounts created on their behalf for promotional events People who have created an account and logged in a few times, then stopped using the account Residents are the users of Second Life, and their appearance is their avatar. The basic avatar is human in appearance but may be of either gender, have a wide range of physical attributes, and may be clothed or otherwise customized to produce a wide variety of humanoid and other forms. Richard Slide 3: Chat There are two main methods of text-based communication within Second Life: local chat global “instant messaging” Chatting is used for public localized conversations between two or more avatars and can be heard (seen messages) within 20 meters. Slide 4: Motion The most basic method of moving around Second Life is by foot (includes running and jumping). To travel more rapidly, avatars can also fly without the need of special equipment. For instantaneous travel, avatars can teleport directly to a specific location. Slide 5: Economy and Real Estate Second Life has its own economy and a currency referred to as Linden Dollars (L$). Regularly, Residents create new goods and services, and buy and sell them in the Second Life virtual world. Currency exchanges also exist where Residents can exchange real world money for L$. On April 27, 2008 US$1 equaled L$265. Only Premium members (those who pay a monthly fee) are able to own land. Landowners pay no additional fees if they own 512 m² or less. Should a member own larger areas of land, he/she must pay an increasing additional fee ranging from US$5 a month up to US$295 a month for an entire 65,536 m² of land or individual island. Slide 34: Although there has been a significant increase in registered residents over the past 6 years, there has been a decline in usage in November, 2007 - down 5% from October, 2007. Population Growth through Registration Count Top 10 Countries by Active User Counts As of November 2007: United States United Kingdom Germany Japan France Brazil Italy Canada Spain Netherlands Slide 35: Gambling ban As of July 26, 2007 in-world gambling has been banned. Dozens of casinos in Second Life were shut down due to the untested legality of virtual world gambling. It was estimated that casinos were pulling in profits of tens of millions of Linden dollars per month or more. Economic statistics: User to User Transactions
