We caught up with Philip Rosedale aka Philip Linden, the man that birthed the massively multi-player experience known as Second Life, at the second annual Second Life Community Convention in San Francisco. GETV’s Irina Slutsky gets some insight from Philip on what makes Second Life so compelling that people will give up their first life to join in. Few people live Second Life like Eric RIce aka Spin Martin, who gives Irina a peak into his world. Also, Varna McLean shows us around her pocket park.
