I just checked out High Fidelity -- I have not been in in many months. I could be doing things incorrectly but it looks the same as it did a year ago, and the graphics are juvenile compared to Second Life. Only 38 domains were online, and I visited 5 -- they all looked two dimensional and were difficult to navigate. Perhaps the new additions will be tremendous, but as things stand now, I will quote Gertrude Stein's famous quote about Oakland --"there is no there there". On the other hand, perhaps the content creation tools are tremendous, and perhaps Mark Zuckerberg is meeting with them regularly saying things like "gee, if it has this and gets off the ground, maybe I'll but it to go along with my headset".

Eddi's post inspired me to go check it out. I feel that his assessment was kind.

I had trouble and conflict with everything. After a couple of minutes inworld, I just didn't care enough to try to figure anything out. Luckily, I didn't have to try to navigate the choppy graphics much longer before the whole thing crashed and my antivirus program swallowed up what was left of the dust. Control Panel: Uninstall and that experience is behind me.

I'm making some creme-filled red velvet cupcakes for Christmas, but right now they are still in alpha stage. Currently, I have a slab of lard with some sprinkles that I'd love everyone to taste.
