Ready Player One – Aech’s Basement Chatroom in Second Life

I previously mentioned the novel Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and its depiction of a pervasive virtual world of the future… in my post on 12th May 2013.


Aech’s basement Chatroom from the novel has been recreated by
Second Life avatar Baldtraveller Shan. Photo above by him.

See author Ernest Cline’s post “Aech’s Basement Chatroom in Second Life” from 11th October 2012. The chatroom is located at But you will have to find some keys for access! [Update: the chatroom is no longer there as at April 2015]
