Nothing I’ve read about Second Life has enticed me to try it out. But over at Wired, I read that Christian missionaries are entering it to try and create converts. But the journalist brings up a good point: If you manage to convert, are you converting the avatar to Christianity or the person behind it?
I love the closing paragraph:
And if you meet someone who appears to be a half-naked woman, have a long talk about God’s plan, and come back in a month to find them dressed as a nun, well, it’s possible that you had such an effect on them that they immediately joined a convent that gives novices internet access, but it seems more likely that you just convinced them to switch fetishes.
