Color me cynical, but I don't know that the Dr. Phil demographic is able to get off the sofa, let alone get past the first-hour experience in SL.

To be brutally honest, I not only know no one who watches Dr. Phil, adult or student, but I have not heard his name in a couple of years, until this story ran.

Linden Lab might get more traction from a story run by Walter Winchell. Dig him up and stick electrodes on him, then give him a mic. It can't hurt.

My experience would indicate that there WAS some effect. I met several new avatars in the days following the Dr. Phil episode who told me that the show was the impetus that caused them to try SL.

"To be sure, there might be some spurt in sign-ups I'm not seeing on these charts, and I've asked Linden Lab about this."

Right on Iggy. To be in SL you need to want to be inside and want to learn the controls. It requires smarts and determination.

To sit and watch dr Phil only requires a pulse

I think all of the new people are still at The Shops in Style Mode... trying to figure out how to pay for something.
