Back in 2009 I inadvertently went to war with Second Life after writing Twitter Is What Second Life Wasn’t: Light, Cheap and Open.
I received quite a lot of attention for my article, primarily because I forgot a very important aspects of social media: it’s not the software, stupid, it’s the people.
Even the title proved my short-sightedness, and here’s why: I have always owned light executive notebooks with crap video cards that just couldn’t run Second Life well at all.
Therefore, I felt that the oppressively huge, resource-intensive, and often buggy binary required to “play” Second Life — and the requirement to be anchored a powerful box and a physical LAN connection to the Internet — was antithetical to the movement of computing, interaction, engagement, and commerce to mobile.
