Second Life ate my Hampster!

The Subject Centre  where I work gets some linkage from the post Engineering in Virtual Worlds, a round up of  Second Life/virtual world things:

“There have been recent reports of the failure of Second Life to live up to the hype, but the potential of virtual worlds – multi-user virtual environments (MUVEs) – is still being explored in education. It is perhaps Second Life’s potential as a First Life marketplace that has failed to live up to the hype.”

Worth a read.

Good that the hype has died down. The idea and the potential still remain long after the “Second Life Stole my Wife” copywriters have moved on. (more…)
