Going Underground reports via Andy Green that there is a London Tube station in Second Life now. She* muses about a SL underground system. Joke not. This would be great. I advise anyone who tries out Second Life to go to bloghud and do a serach for trains etc. There you will find links to SL places where you can sit on a train and get taken on tours of places - the IBM island has a good one.
This, as in meatspace, is one of the best ways to be a tourist in my opinion. Sure, it's great to walk around and discover bits of cities that no guide book can tell you about. But I like going on organised transport to get a feel for where's where and what's what in the city. I am also, ultimately, quite lazy.
Anyway, off to check out the station and see if it leads anywhere.**
* Great links here too to videos of lego and dancing on tube platforms.
** Just had an initial search for it - can't find the bloomin thing (please can someone sort out Second Life's search functions??!!) and Andy's blog is damn hard to navigate imho!!
