Summary:
"Centered on two people homebound by their disabilities who have found community online Login2life explores the growing number of people who spend much of their lives in online virtual worlds. Elaborate digital platforms like Second Life and World of Warcraft offer novel opportunities for friendship, sex, employment, and aesthetic experience in virtual communities populated by cartoon-like avatars. While these simulated worlds are often treated with contempt by the general media, Login2life takes a more sympathetic approach, profiling seven people deeply immersed in these worlds, and attempting to understand what each gets from their virtual life."--Container.
