Where your patrons are – or are they?
Putting on my asbestos gloves, I write a mildly cautionary post.
If you love Second Life, more power to you. I tried it–had to, for a contest, at some length–and didn’t care for it. I’m one of perhaps four million ghost avatars, always to be counted by Linden but never to return (I have no idea what my password is, for that matter.)
That’s me. I probably wouldn’t care for most virtual worlds (except those in fiction). That’s me.
Walt takes on a current Library 2.x trend, get into Second Life (SL) as a librarian, because that's where your patrons are.. in fact, I am trying SL, but mostly on my own, to understand the concept; the client software; interactivity; fun factors, etc. But, Walt's point is well-made, even given the math has to be estimates...
