Ted Nelson’s Second Life

POSTED: September 15, 2006

Daniel Livingstone posted to the Second Life Educational Mailing List about a snippet he had found concerning the legendary inventor of hypertext himself.

On page 54 of this week’s New Scientist he is asked “What social networking sites have you explored?”

He replies:

Second Life is interesting – a three-dimensional world in which people pay to play house. They build and decorate their own “homes” and “visit” each other.

Now I have to wait a week or so before this issue appears in the library, because I would like to read the rest of the interview, to see what Theodor is up to at the moment.
