Hi Laetitia,
I've carried out participatory observation in SL since late 2006 (and 
studied VW since 2002), presently, I'm translating into English the two 
books I've written about virtual worlds (EverQuest, Second Life, 
Activeworlds), but a very preliminary English version of the SL 
observations can be found on the blog: worlds.ruc.dk, 
http://worlds.ruc.dk/index.php?cat=5. Use Explorer to open the file 
(it's heavy due to many snapshots) - for some reason Firefox doesn't work.

Sisse ;-)
