The original premise of Second Life was that people really could have a second life. They could be a postman or a shop clerk by day, but by night, they could be a DJ or a builder and earn a living. People took this seriously and did just that to the extent of even quitting their day jobs. The consequence of this is that the lives of the people in Second Life and the institutions they make are a type of civil society.
