Short history of Second life

second_life_logo.jpg    Second life has been conceived from Philip Rosedale. Like all the artists, also he has always wished to create a hard work able to represent the world in a microcosm. Instead using colours, words, marble and clay, he has used bytes. Philip Rosedale began to work on the concept that would have become SL (initially Linden World), in 1991. The first tests began in November 2002 and six months after SL came opened for the public. The version beta previewed limited registration that they served in order “to generate materializing them” and to conserve all objects created from the residents in the virtual world. To that they joined to the costs use of lands, beyond to a rate for teletransport and a tax on “prims” (“primitives”, the matter blocks with which the virtual objects are constructed). At the beginning , this choice seemed much reasonable one, considered that every new prim introduced it contributes to weight down hardware that ago to turn the virtual world of Second Life. But that one to tax the creations of the residents in reality did not demonstrate one moved oculata under the political profile and in the long run it carried to heavy consequences. Second life was launch officially in june 2003.
