In the spirit of OneWebDay, I've been checking out a few of the many sites I've bookmarked but haven't had a chance to visit. Meez is a site where you can create a free avatar to use for IM, email, and personal websites. There are many of these services out there; I think they are also called dollmakers. Most of them don't look as nice as this one.
Pretty cool, huh? I hope my Yahoo avatar doesn't get jealous :-). I don't think I would replace my Yahoo girl, mainly because Yahoo provides a body type that is closer to a realistic size. Meez is clearly aimed at teenagers. Still, it is fun to play with.
