Hello, this looks familiar. But what's that queer platform perched on the spire?

Opinions differ on whether virtual world Second Life is a worthwhile place to spend time and money, or just a great, stuttering time-sink. But we enjoy popping in from time to time during insomniac moments. Last night, we revisited Second London—the most extensive attempt to recreate our city in this particular virtual world. It has grown and improved since our last sojourn and now offers experiences unlikely to be repeated in real life, as our image gallery shows. We forgot to take a link, but if you want to find the location just boot up Second Life and search for Big Ben. To keep up with new developments, subscribe to the Virtually London blog.

Bungee jumping in a dinner jacket? How debonair.

There are six new London areas under construction by real-life Londoners: Green Park, City of Westminster, Regents Park, Notting Hill, Fulham, and City of London. Many real-life companies are opening offices in London, Second Life.
