I once played a future RPG, back in the old days, I must have been either
Cyberpunk 2020
ICE cyberspace, GURPS or Shadowrun. It described massive hives of activity
in central
places, but in the fringes, hard to reach, where alien, far-out and forlorn
places, where the
refuge of cyberspace accumulated, often as senseless stuff.

Isn't it a glorious picture?

But if you want crowds in Second Life I can point you to a few people in
there that'll
buzzsaw your ears off and take you into lag-pits worse than a 1000 gallon
kitchen blender.
