I’ll admit it. I have enough trouble maintaining my “first life,” let alone a second one. That’s why I’ve never really given Second Life more than a cursory glance–that is, until I stumbled on their music community page.

The digital music options in Second Life provide a wealth of opportunities for programming and service. You can visit live concerts, check out online DJs, and even participate in meet ‘n greets with nationally-known artists. You’ll find quite the variety of artists available. Even Chamillionaire got into the act last summer. You also have a lot of options for participation. Having a battle of the bands? Stream it. Want to show off your CD collection? You can stream that, too.

So, for anyone who’s at least as far behind the curve as I am, I suggest checking out Second Life for what it can offer you and your teens in that regard.

(And for those of you interested in media diversity, check out this news if you haven’t, and breathe a sigh of relief. Hopefully, more radio exposure to a broader range of artists will help increase the circulation on some of our lesser-known offerings.)
