Inventory, Cash, and Land

Money. Money. Money.

Even in the virtual world, you can't get away from money. It's what makes even a virtual world go 'round. The Second Life economy has made a few millionaires, but far more folks are making a few bucks here and there. We help you find your place in the virtual global economy.

In Chapter 9, we show you how to manage your Inventory so you can organize all the virtual stuff you might be buying or selling. After all, what good is that awesome pair of shoes if you can't find them to wear? (Gee, isn't the virtual world a little too much like the real world? At least in Second Life, you can't lose your house keys.)

In Chapter 10, you get a primer on the Second Life economy: where money comes from, where it goes, how to buy it, how to sell it, and how to begin earning some of your own. When the virtual cash in your virtual pocket starts to burn in a hole in your virtual jeans, we show you the wisest ways to spend it in Chapter 11.

Finally, in Chapter 12, we talk about the best investment in Second Life — land. It's Monopoly on a grand scale — and you, too, can become a land baron.
