Draxtor Despres today uploaded a documentary video called LOGIN2LIFEon his official YouTube channel which runs for 1 hour and 26 minutes. Second Life and World of Warcraft is featured in this documentary. Woooot! :)
Elaborate digital platforms like Second Life and World of Warcraft offer novel opportunities for friendship, sex, employment, and aesthetic experience in virtual communities populated by cartoon-like avatars.
Centered around people who have found communities online, Login 2 Life profiles people deeply immersed in virtual worlds, including individuals who are homebound because of their disabilities, and attempts to understand what these individuals get from their virtual lives.
Apparently this SL/WoW documentary “Login2Life” will be shown at the Reel Abilities Film Fest in NYC at 10pm on Tuesday 17th March 2015. There will be a discussion panel in Second Life with a RL audience which sounds most interesting indeed.
There are many exciting events to look forward to during March 2015 in Second Life and yay spring is around the corner. These events are the ones that I know of at the moment and if you know of any others please share them in comments.
