Darwin's Second Life

During the completion of The Rough Guide to Evolution, the editor waggishly added his own title to the section on Artificial Life: "Getting Alife".  On similar note, I have just seen this post  from the Darwin Evolving blog (feed here). It appears that Darwin and his Beagle journey will be re-born in the multi-player simulation game Second Life. I have avoided the game up till now, but perhaps I now need to get an account and create an avatar (would be nice to lose the grey hair, beer belly and double-chin!).
