What's wrong with Second Life?

With all outside attention focused on Second Life it's interesting to follow its development from an insider perspective. Many signals are pointing at fundamental problems. Read this interview for some insights.

“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.”
