:D She just got off the phone and told me that in a couple weeks after Alexandra Alter finishes her research, there will be a photographer to come out to take her picture. Soon after, we should find out when the article should be published. :D

Edited to correct the reporter's name.... :blush:

SecondLife (http://www.secondlife.com/) is a growing community of developers and visitors. The visitors are much like the gatherings in other interactive game worlds like WOW and Everquest, with the exception that ANYBODY can become a developer in SecondLife and actually earn an income. My daughter is one of these gifted individuals. Look up Sylver Bu (http://www.google.com/search?q=%22Sylver+Bu%22&sourceid=navclient-ff&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1B3GGGL_en___US230) and Okarthel (http://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&rlz=1B3GGGL_en___US230&q=%22Okarthel%22&btnG=Search) (Google search links). Sylver Bu is my daughter's in-world avatar and Okarthel (Dragonspeak word for "HOME") is her "sim"ulator. She actually earns income on SecondLife designing the equivalent of mascot-type mythical creature avatars that people purchase with the in-world currency called LindenDollars. LindenDollars can be converted to real-world currency which she has been doing for two years now.

That's a little of SecondLife in a nutshell.

Oi vai! I did not understand any of this :?? It's like when my BF starts talking to me about alphabet soup of programing :whoosh: However, I am sure you are very proud of her and I really do congratulate you and her for being such smartie pants :) :)
