Greetings! My name is CyFishy Traveler, and I am an inhabitant of the online environment known as Second Life. I've been there since August 2006, and in the course of getting up to speed I've observed that while there are all kinds of online resources for people who are familiar with Second Life, there are very few for people who are just starting to figure it out, or even for people who haven't signed up yet. Admittedly, there are all kinds of helpful places for newbies within Second Life itself, but that can be a bit like learning to swim by getting chucked in the deep end. So I decided to create this little site so people who are just starting out--or are thinking about it--can get a feel for it so they can enter Second Life with a little more confidence.
To this end, I will be adding a Highly Opinionated FAQ, various tutorials and eventually other things to help Second Life newbies (and, heck, maybe even veterans.)
