Second Life Successor Intended to Be Multi-Platform & Attract "Hundreds of Millions" -- I.E. Very Different from Second Life
Two of the most interesting things said by Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg about Second Life 2 in his Engadget interview? First of all, it's going to be "Multi-device from day one" (including phones, he mentions). Second of all, this:
"We're building the next-generation platform for hundreds of millions of people; not for millions of people."
In other words, very different from Second Life in some fundamental ways. Also, these stated intentions should lead us to this conclusion:
If Linden Lab is successful with what they plan, Second Life users will only be a small fraction of the larger userbase. Worth keeping in mind, when talking about such grandiose, implausible proposals as importing old Second Life content into a successor with far more ambitious plans.
