New words and new worlds

Jargon of the day: slurl, a url that points to a location within Second Life. Which, btw, has open-sourced its client, a smart move and consistent with their strategy of becoming a platform and not merely an application. This is exciting for me, since I don't have the patience or video-game training to use the VR interface. I imagine somebody now will make a client that makes the world appear like a 90's era text MUD, which is much more accessible and appealing.
