Virtual Hippies

Some Second Life residents lived through the days of "Sex and Drugs and Rock n' Roll" from the mid 60s to the mid 70s. But for most of us, we were either too young to hear about what was going on, or born afterwards. Among the groups of people associated with the time are the hippies. Sometimes looked down upon, occasionally celebrated, just who were they? Hearing about a place inworld called Free Spirit Farms, Becky Shamen, whom did live through those times, took the opportunity to explain as she visited the place and talked to the people there whom had taken a little of the Age of Aquarius to the virtual world. Also, the Newser was informed about some "nip" that supposedly provided a virtual psychedelic trip. Becky gave it a try and compared the results to the experiences of the real thing.
