Second Life — like a bad boomerang it comes back at me

Just when I thought I was done with 2L, Brandweek asks me to do a Q&A with them and one of the questions was:

“As Web-marketing vp for Lenovo, you have been a vocal critic of Second Life, writing on your blog: “There is nothing to do in Second Life except, pardon my bluntness, try to get laid.” Why are you so down on it?””

If I ever make it into Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations I’m going to go down in history because of that stupid dildonics quote. Forbes nailed me with it a year ago, now back it comes.

The reality is this: I haven’t logged into Second Life for months. Definitely not this year. I don’t think about it, I don’t care about it, and I certainly never read about it anymore now that the media has moved on to something more lurid to hype. I see the former CEO of Organic left that agency to become CEO of Linden Labs — he certainly must see signs of life. Businessweek hasn’t put 2L back on its cover. Indeed, not much news at all has come out of the land of Furries and Griefers.

Whatever, I have moved on. Stay tuned for the Brandweek Q&A next week.
