Several of my colleagues are convinced of the potential of Second Life and other "metaverses" and are running with it as hard as they possibly can.
I admire their enthusiasm and passion and am following their progress with interest and admiration.
However, I don't think it's inconsistent also to state that I can't help feeling that I'm missing something. I'm not ashamed to say that I just don't get it.
However, this Slashdot article reminded me why I'm probably wrong. When government starts to realise there's money being made (and decide that they want their cold, dead hands on it), it suggests there really is something interesting going on...
So, even though I'm not convinced this is an area that's "for me", I'm glad to see that people I know and respect are in there and making it their own.
