It seems the SL population has dwindled substantially since I was last frequenting it, and I wonder if it's nearing the end of it's lifecycle.
Sadly, nothing has really come along to offer a suitable replacement.
I wouldn't worry about that. If Second Life gets shut down, those who are still interested in virtual worlds will likely move on to the hypergrid. Currently the biggest hurdle to OpenSim adoption is the fact that people have spent lots of time and money to grow their SL inventories. Once these inventories are gone, the prospect of starting from scratch in a truly open-ended world won't be so daunting any more.

Thanks for the tutorial links!
I ordered a book off Amazon as well called "The Complete Guide to Blender Graphics: Computer Modeling and Animation "
