Second Life's Amsterdam Snapped Up on eBay

A "recreated" version of Amsterdam on Second Life sold today for $50,000 on eBay. The recreation includes, of course, Amsterdam's free-wheeling Red-Light District, where plenty of activities are, well, available.

In real life, Amsterdam is a neat place except for the outdoor urinals and the renegade scooters waiting to crash into oblivious tourists like myself. Here's hoping the Second Life version never gets quite that realistic. (Although if visitors can run into the queen at the local patisserie, as a friend of mine did recently, that would be nifty.)

By the way, Regina Lynn is taking a few days off but she'll be back soon. Keep a lookout for her weekly column: She's interviewing Second Life/Amsterdam creator Stroker Serpentine.
