A virtual simulation of Guantanamo in Second Life was designed by Nonny de la PeÃ±a, a journalist and filmmaker and Peggy Weil, an assistant professor in the interactive-media division of the U.S.C. film school. The game is called Gone Gitmo.
Vanity Fair reported that De la PeÃ±a and Weil say they created the virtual torture camp to raise awareness that "Our government is denying the basic rights of habeas corpus to prisoners."
They further note, "The idea behind Gone Gitmo was to create a virtual but accessible version of a place that was real but inaccessible to all but detainees, military personnel, and dedicated lawyers."
I have never had enough curiosity to visit Second Life but this sounds life something I would be interested in.
