Strange and surreal scientific experiments are running amok lately. First it was the Kinect, and now it is the Second Life Project Skylight viewer demo running in the cloud thanks to the Gaikai cloud-based streaming service. The demo site allows you to get a feel for what is possible by running Second Life in a small cloud, however, as word has gotten out, it seems that the beta site is a little bogged down at the moment. Some people are able to connect to the demo and others are not. All this proves to be a fantastic option for connecting to Second Life, especially for users with older PC hardware and newbies looking for a quick Second Life glance without the full client install cumbersome-ness.
