From Fleep’s blog:
“The people in Second Life aren’t worth reaching” – Fleep’s Deep Thoughts
While I am not going to come to the aid of Linden Labs and Second Life specifically, I do think it would be hard to justify that statement in general about virtual worlds. Like it or not, virtual words are here to stay in the way we work in the 21st century. There is just something unique about the collaboration experience that make them too potentially valuable to go away.
That being said, Second Life does have it’s problems (which I’ve blogged about before), so it may be that we talk about Second Life in a few years the same way we talk about Geo Cities today, but if that’s the case there will be a virtual world out there that we talk about the same way we talk about blogs today.
