A second look at Second Life

July 12, 2009

Took a late night spin through the virtual world of Second Life today in my old Corey Akula virtual avatar.

Corey Akula in Corona Cay, Second Life's hub for podcasters

Corey Akula in Corona Cay Sunday morning, Second Life's hub for podcasters

Man, has that place changed!! Almost all the spots devoted to the podcast community are gone. Only Corona Cay sim seems to be doing well. No more Podcast Island or Podshow Island either. And BUCKET’s old home in Nowhereville is now residental, and no longer the hip island resort it once was.

I’m still trying to figure out if BUCKET will have any Second Life component in it in its second incarnation. Depends on how much I get back there before the August 21 debut, I guess.

But is SL on the ropes? I don’t see the old SLInsider.com gang publishing much in their new home at Massively.com anymore. Has SL’s learning curve scared off too many potential users … expecting The Sims and instead, getting simply confused?

I’ll investigate … but I still enjoy flying through the skies of SL, with the virtual wind whipping thru my hair.

If you see me, Corey Akula, be sure to say HI!
