|08:33 pm - Now on Inworldz|
I've been involved with Second Life for almost five years now, but as time passes, it changes more and more from the place I fell in love with, in ways that are increasingly bad. I'm also no longer sure if it will remain an economically viable company, since its financial footing seems more and more shaky as more and more users flee.
And now I'm one of those users, as of today. For a variety of reasons, while I will maintain a presence in Second Life (for now), I've decided to open an account on rival service Inworldz. It simply seems prudent to no longer have all of my virtual eggs in one virtual world's basket.
I expect to set up shop in Inworldz after I become better acquainted with the place. It will take time to rebuild my product line there, but hopefully the company that runs Inworldz will be more merchant-friendly than Linden Lab has been.

I have never gone onto Second Life. I guess that makes me an oddball, but to be honest, (and I know this sounds strange) I feared that I would somehow get 'stuck' there. It is also why I do not play online games.
You should try it, while it's still around. I think you'd enjoy it. There are several folks on there that you know from an event we both habitually attend. It's a great way to stay in touch with them over long distances, in a way that feels like you are physically in their presence.
