On to the Virtual Worlds!
I have been tracking the explosion of the virtual worlds (Second Life, There.com, etc.) in the press. Finally, I have decided to get deeply educated on the topic.
It is a fascinating world with its own language (InWorld, SIM, Gridwide, etc.). I am hoping to come up to speed on this over the next month or so.
Here is an interesting metric from the Second Life website: "Linden Lab creates new land to keep up with demand. What began as 64 acres in 2003 is now over 65,000 acres and growing rapidly." In the real world, I would have said: "Our key focus is scalability of our site."
I hope to record my discoveries here on a regular basis!
