Their SL... My SL

This is the way Second Life tends to look in the media.

This is how it looks to me.

Their SL... My SL

All the time I see representations of Second Life on the media-- on the news, on dramas, on tech specials.

That's good, but the Second Life they are showing isn't MY second life.

The photos will show why.

There's more to it than that; for the most part, media coverage of SL is at the Weekly World News level, focusing on scandal and sleaze, or following the standard hype/bash cycle.

Those who actually spend time in SL know about the beauty, the whimsy, and about the friendships that form. The question is how to get the media to stay for more than the sound bite.
