    Tat has hit the nail right on the head:

    Call it a game, call it a platform, call it a country, call it whatever the hell you want. [Second Life] is a communications medium that is represented as a 3d world. It brings people together, for good or ill.

    To reiterate that, Second Life is about communication, expression, and interpersonal connections. What makes SL powerful is the extent and number of ways we can communicate and express ourselves through it: the things we build or buy, the places that we visit, the pictures that we hang on our walls, even (and especially) the avatar that we wear.

    Personal expression isn’t new, of course. Linden Lab didn’t invent the idea of dressing to fit our personality, decorating our workspaces with personal effects, or making a picture to express how we feel; these are things people have been doing for countless ages. What is new here is the medium and how it leverages technology to amplify our expression.

    Never before has a piece of software let you say This is who I am! in so many ways to so many people in so many places.
