Machinima – Second Childhood Network

Choosing to use a child avatar in Second Life can be risky. Many people believe that you’re automatically involved in illegal (virtual) sexual activities. You don’t even need to be a child avatar per se either. A friend of mine’s avatar is the same height as her RL self (1.7metres) but because everyone in SL are giant supermodels she looks like a kid. I don’t know if the Second Childhood Network is just a front for illegal activities or not – I hope not – but I love the concept and they’ve made a very cool machinima commercial.
