I'm Still Reading, but NOT CONVINCED virtual worlds are for me.
Not sure you are ready to make the leap into virtual worlds just yet? Just keep reading without creating an avatar. You will see how easy it is and how much you can experience. For instance, you can visit simulated regions designed after cities you always wanted to visit, but never got the chance. Or maybe you like to listen to live musicians? How does listening and dancing to a performer streaming live from half-way around the world sound..and maybe even having a conversation with them after?
Really, there is no limit to what you can do in virtual worlds. If you can think it, you can do it or build it. Get inspired!

We just thought we would take a moment to mention to all of the virtual world veteran's out there that several editor's of this course (and this author too!) got excited, on several occasions, during their review process.
We discovered a tip or two that made our virtual world life and experience easier, which means more time for fun! Why not check it out and see? Virtual World Survival Guide Introduction.
