The casual visitor to Second Life may be put off by the sheer acreage of crap that a newcomer ends up running into. I know I was – and I didn’t start going back until I’d seen reports of things really worth seeing. Luckily, you can teleport from place to place, and hence avoid the tedium in between the good stuff – but you still need a list of places to check out. Which is where comics maverick Warren Ellis’s column for Reuters comes in handy – and this week, he simply lists a bunch of his favourite virtual haunts. If you have a few hours to spare of the weekend, why not create a free account and go and see what all the fuss is about? And if you visit The Wastelands, be sure to stop by and say hello.
