Cyber Life?

    I was just wonder what is there such a thing as "living" in Cyberspace?  I've never heard of it. . . but I've not had my own computer of a few years now.

    Just wondering.

    Have you ever heard of 'Second Life'? Or you could talk to someone who is an avid World of Warcraft player lol. I wouldn't recommend trying it. Most of us have transferred our lives to the web to a great extent though, using Facebook and so forth.

      Yeah...good point here. I was a bit ignorant to how much time somebody could actually spend on the internet.

      A buddy of mine told me about one of his friends that literally ignores his family (wife, kids etc...) and plays XBOX all day and night online after losing his job..XBOX live as it were...

      Another example was this World of Warcraft...people stay up for 3-4 days playing this bloody game...never touched it and afraid to even look at it...it must be a lot like The Ring.

      I was also ignorant to this whole "Alias" thing....my buddy told me people carry out several lives online all day and night...male and female.

      Bad enough to be immersed in answering e-mails...writing...some instant messenger here and there....the thought of social networking sites...and these games scares the ever-living out of me.

    Well, if you're a person like me, you'd probably be spending 3/4 of your day in front of the PC and 1/4 sleeping...

    that's a perfect example of living in cyberspace

    I don't about most of the people but, I really can't live without being online! Its like addiction now. We are really living more of our lives in cyber space.

      O.k.  but what about the physical world?  What about jobs/family/nature?  I have heard about "Second Life" but I don't understand it. . .what's the big deal?  Can someone plz tell me-- what's the attraction?
