A while back I heard about www.secondlife.com. It’s 3D world that allows you to interact with others online in a more realistic fashion than email and web sites. It’s actually quite difficult to explain now that I’m trying :).

Anyway, the point is that you can make money in the game and then transfer that money back into real $. I’ve had several ideas about ways to make money. My creative skills are mediocre, so I don’t think I’ll make a mint as a fashion designer for avatar clothing. A more likely opportunity would be writing custom scripts for movement of objects in Second Life.

More on this later.
