Entering Second Life's New Toulouse, another reimagining of history in a Virtual Reality Sim.
New Toulouse has a community that combines Second Life sim presence with NING social community, using a range of Web 2.0 tools to support a society of imagination around Jazz and New Orleans.
New Toulouse shows the elements that make web culture. Firstly there is a theme that is clear to member and has a pre-existing presence in RL. Beyond that is uses execution in Second Life with art, 3-D design and music. Around these are other Web 2.0 spaces like Flickr, YouTube, NING and Blogs that reinforce the community.
Many members of the community are active steam punks.
