Life’s Sweet Wine’s too Warm to Sip

Here’s my question.

second life avatarIf you’re a happily married, middle aged man who likes to build things but is not big on chatting with strangers, what, exactly, do you do in Second Life after you’ve built your castle?

I can’t believe I’m about to write this, but I think I’ve lost my jones for Second Life. I have built a fine castle from scratch, with good music and lots of gadgets. Now on those rare occasions when I log onto Second Life, all I do is wander around my ghost-town of a region and ask myself “what now?”

I’m not much of a computer gamer, so the casinos hold little attraction. I’m not too interested in chatting up random strangers. I have explored about as much as I want to.

In sum, I’m bored.

Second Life is fantastic from a technological perspective and I am still sold on the business plan, primarily because of its appeal to young people. I’m just not sure what there is to do there that will keep my attention.

Any ideas?

Unless I come up with a plan, I think I’m going to bag it.
