Over a million accounts have now been registered in Second Life with 70,000 over the past few days. I guess that Reuters story really started a landslide. Judging by the stats, Second Life is beating the odds in getting active participants (over 400,000 in the last 60 days). Much of that, I think, can be attributed to the virtual economy. Ownership matters a lot in getting people to stick around. If they've paid for a plot of virtual land, users are more likely to come visit it now and again.
