Well, but it's true. The be there or be square part. It's good to be an early adopter of virtual reality. Really.
Sure, you've heard that Second Life is just a game. And you've heard that life is just a dream. And that all the world's a stage.

All of which has nothing to do with the fact that likeminded persons who otherwise would not have the chance to meet have that chance by means of Indra's interNet. Start now, because why not, eh?
Start here. Or start here, at Virtually Speaking.
