When I’m not writing on this blog – or being half dead of pneumonia, say – I’m the caregiver for two disabled people, 24 hours per day, every day of every year. That’s the sort of thing that keeps you indoors a lot. I’m far from alone in this. Second Life, notably, has a disproportionately large population of users who are either disabled or infirm, or who are caregivers for them.

At one time, this community was estimated to be in excess of 60% of Second Life’s active general population. Second Life is an amazingly useful tool for making and maintaining social contacts and having an active social life when you just cannot get out much – or at all. Leastways, when the platform stability isn’t driving you up the wall, anyway.

Second Life isn’t the actual thing that I’m talking about here today, though.
