Information Week recently published an article that describes how various real world schools, researchers, and government agencies are purchasing land in Second Life to conduct experiments that have real life implications.
University researchers use Second Life to study urban planning and create a meeting place for people with Aspergers syndrome, a neurobiological disorder, among other projects. The Department of Homeland Security has used the online world to develop emergency response training.

"Seven years ago, people would ask, 'Where's your Web site?'" Paffendorf says. "Now it's, 'Where's your island, where's your virtual world?' It wasn't like that a year ago."
