Researchers are discovering ways to use Second Life to study human interaction on an entirely new level.
Nick Yee, a graduate student in the Department of Communications at Stanford University, has been involved with virtual research since he was an undergraduate psychology major.
In response to this concern, Linden Lab began asking that researchers working in Second Life submit project plans and obtain signed consent forms if necessary.
Within the virtual world, residents can develop land, design clothes, and build amusement parks and then charge other residents who want to buy a house, shop for clothes or visit the amusement park. The exchange rate is currently around 250 Lindens to one U. With chat and instant messaging capabilities, Second Life avatars can communicate in several ways.The basic question is the degree to which avatars are useful proxies for humans.
