Marianne McCann


Marianne McCann (February 22, 2006) is a child avatar on Second Life. Coming in-world as a fairly standard adult avatar, Marianne soon developed into the "inner child" of her player.

Marianne was involved with builds within the Second Life's Third Birthday Event and Fourth Birthday Event (the latter largely created by Loki Eliot) to focus on the "lives" of child avatars within Second Life. She has attempted to provide a "face" to SL's "Inner Children," and is a officer of Second Life Children.

In October of 2006, Snapzilla spotlighted her extensive collection of in-world snapshots. She also was chosen as the winner of the 2006 Bubbly Kids in-world beauty pageant, is a graduate of HardKnock Elementary, and helped to create a public park on Info Island.

In November of 2007, Marianne won the 2007 Uncanny Valley Expo contest sponsored by New World Notes. This led to a sizable interview on the use of child avatars in Second Life.

She writes for the Metaverse Messenger on child avatars.
