Second Life is Dead - Prepare for an OpenSim World

John Rogate, Marjon Klapwijk, Aug 15, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Oh, hey, I don't want to say I told you so, but according to this presentation at a Sloan Consortium conference, "Linden Labs and Second Life are rapidly becoming a dying entity. Schools are flocking to alternative Virtual World solutions. Now there is a low/no cost and secure alternative to Second Life. OpenSimulator is a rapidly spreading alternative. Virtual Worlds are coming." Now that we are dispensing with the closed-world corporate version, perhaps we can now get on with the project of building a web of three-dimensional sites. Now that would be a bandwagon I could envision getting on to! Via James OReilly post in the e-Learning in Developing and Developed Countries Facebook group.
