Met alle belangstelling van buiten is het steeds interessanter om de insiders te volgen voor wat betreft de ontwikkeling van Second Life. Steeds meer signalen wijzen erop dat er iets fundamenteel fout gaat. Lees dit interview bijvoorbeeld.
"I mean, there is room for just about everyone on Second Life. I don't personally believe it's the corporations that are the problems. It's the core attitude of the host company. The eagerness to put the bottom line ahead of the benefit and safety of their customers... the ones who are paying the bills. As an example... Linden Lab has much vaunted their "more than 1 million members" status. To get there, they opened the grid to no-ID registration. Email addy only. And we all know how easy it is to get an email addy. As a result, griefing increased by major amounts. The number of adolescents (and resulting problems) increased by major amounts. These things were not for the good of the grid."
