Conclusion and Citations

Conclusion:

Since the inception of the Internet and Web 2.0, developers continue to come up with new applications and products, all designed to fulfill a purpose. Educators as well as average citizens hope to use this technology to better their lives and learn more information. Second Life, the virtual community within the Internet, is part of that technology. The ability to create an environment conducive to learning yet fun is a trait that all other Internet technologies should aspire to. Within Second Life, players can create their own businesses or start a music career. Education within Second Life is also full of promise, just beginning to be part of the mainstream.
