New Portal to Second Life: Your Phone

With new software for mobile phones, citizens of the burgeoning online universe Second Life will never have to leave their cozy virtual world, even when they're away from their computers. The new software is a program that lets cellular users with Java-based, Internet-capable phones log in to Second Life remotely, see who else is "in-world," and communicate with them via text messaging.

Every time I start imagining the ambiance for a potential science fiction story I read something like this and have to rethink almost everything.

Yeah, if I wanted to get involved in the total time sink of computer/online gaming, Second Life is definitely the game of choice. I say, IF (note the "big if").

This happens to me too. It's a full-time job just keeping up with the technology let alone trying to extrapolate the future!
