Writing about the Virtual
Natalya here. It’s been awhile since I have posted on this blog, mostly because I took a well-deserved break from the virtual over the latter part of the summer. Instead, I got to read about it in the book “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline.
Cline actually spent time in Second Life, and it is definitely evident in the book. A Second Life user actually built one of the spaces from the book on the grid a few years ago, but sadly it is no longer there. There were many times where something in the book felt very familiar, because I had done similar things in Second Life. Check out my review over on my “RL” blog for more info about the book and its plot.
