Second Life losing 8.3 sims per day

9 comments

one of my 2012 predictions last january 1st was that SL would lose 2,500 private sims. well, i actually predicted only 1,000 would be lost but revised that in april to 2,500 not because i am plotting for SL’s demise – they have brought that on to themselves to a certain extent with their seemingly […]

Linden Lab’s value drops again, but maybe it’s a good sign

2 comments

last thursday i posted about a 2% decline in Linden Lab’s capital index by SharesPost and mentioned that Linden Lab doesn’t seem to fluctuate much or doesn’t get analysed that often by SharesPost. i checked it today and was surprised to see it dropped again – albeit, by a very tiny amount (0.04% or 2.22% […]

SL user hours continue to decline

16 comments

in today’s world we toss around big numbers like millions, billions, and even trillions as if we have a grasp of just how big those numbers are. i had a college physics professor once that put a meaningful context of how large a million is and i wish i could eloquently do the same the […]

The Worst Bug in SL ?

15 comments

Warning:  I dare to revisit here an old subject that people have many opinions on.   What is the ONE thing that drives you crazy about Second Life or Open Sim? The one “bug” that really lessens your enjoyment or satisfaction of virtual worlds? I’m tempted to say “Viewer 2+” from Linden Lab. But as […]

omg, had i been drinking a Red Bull, i would have sprayed it all over the place when i saw soror’s blog post about the latest LL newsletter! Linden Lab is really pushing the virtual world envelope now! an iPad viewer? nope, not yet triple the concurrency? nah, think bigger sim tiers of $100? pffft, […]

Tateru’s charts & the future of Second Life

3 comments

Tateru does a wonderful job displaying Second Life statistics. i confess that i don’t really know how to effectively read them (you can do so much with statistics and it is easy to think you see a trend but it’s not really what it appears) i believe that her charts are updating realtime thus always […]

LL really is done with me!

one comment

last week i mentioned that lots of old in-world stuff had been returned to me from Second Life (mainly from the sims sold last february and also from my dumpy little Linden home) i downgraded my membership back when Linden Lab fired a third of its work force and had to hassle with Live Chat […]

the lab that cried wolf

8 comments

have you read Philip’s post yet? i know i am critical of the Lab and can rationalize this to myself however, i still hold out hope for Second Life to become better. not for the sake of the Lab, but for the residents. it’s a great virtual world filled with so many wonderfully creative people […]

stop crying and be happy

a few emails, some tweets, and a skype with subQuark helped me get centered (read: a firm but loving smack to the head) =D even though i don’t log into second life anymore, it is a big part of me. after all, i learned a great deal in my three years in it and carry […]

Linden Lab’s lack of grace

3 comments

it’s pretty sad when one pink-haired avatar and a lovable poutine eating subQuark beat out a multi-million dollar company on search engine crap i know i mentioned this a few posts back, but i am so mad at the firings at linden lab and the loss of massive talent and just want to scream i […]

subQuark on Linden Lab and Social Networking

15 comments

Reading Ener’s recent post prompted me to chime in on Linden Lab, SEO, and social networking. Virtual Worlds are a tough go and rather niche-based. Look at Habbo Hotel; it started in 2000 and is squarely aimed at teenagers from 13 to 18. It has done very well in the last ten years with Wikipedia […]
