Lions and Tigers and oh no! Topeka in Second Life.

While prowling around Second life today I stumbled upon the SL home of the Topeka Shawnee County Library. So if you have SL installed on your machine, use this SLURL to get yourself on over for a look see. There are pictures and Kansas Resources. But at least for the time being it is Fred Phelps free.

My Avatar, Simone is checking out a Kansas map that can be used to find cities in Kansas.

Oh! What is a SLURL? Literally a Second Life URL. Clicking on the link should take you to a Second Life map. If you have Second Life installed on your machine you will be teleported to the location. Cool? Yes!

This picture shows Ichabod, the Mascot of Washburn University. The panel gives access to many Kansas State resources. Note that in SL you can attach URL's to in world objects. There is a statement in the SL scripting language for doing this and the Shawnee County Library Site takes full advantage of this feature.
