7 Wonders of the Grid

You know I had never really thought about it until now, but what are the 7 wonders of the world in Second Life? We have the 7 wonders of the planet Earth, well we have the 7 wonders of the ancient world, 7 wonders of the middle ages, 7 wonders of the modern world, we should have the 7 wonders of Second Life, but, I think this will be a little harder to pick as you have to either have been to everything in SL or know someone who has, as there are not too many sites that discuss the specific sim’s in real life, most articles reference SL as a whole, not its parts. So, let’s call this a treasure hunt as well, and let’s find some wonders we don’t know about yet, and maybe we can introduce new and useful ways to use SL virtual worlds in general.

Determining The Seven Wonders of Second Life

Criteria: The criteria are really quite simple (and, yes, subjective). The Seven Wonders of Second Life are the most creative and unique builds in SL that are well done and mind blowing. Not asking too much, eh? They don’t have to be educational but let’s keep it clean ;-)

Steps:
1. Review my nominations
2. In a comment or Trackback, add your list of seven including any of mine or others that have posted their nominations using the simple form below in My Nominations
3. After an extended period, I’ll calculate the locations receiving the most nominations to determine The Seven Wonders of Second Life.

Most importantly, have fun with this and enjoy experiencing some amazingly creative minds that exist within this virtual world (it is also a great time to ponder some educational possibilities… I know… I couldn’t let one post go by without saying ponder the possibilities in education).
