I have been waiting a long time for something that will be more emersive. More of the feeling of being there. Second life and World of warcraft would be so much more fun.

I have been following DeeDee for some time on flickr and as a photographer i find her pictures really good.
And as Second life creator i know how much work there is behind a picture. Check out here pictures at flickr. It is worth it.
