Second Life Doesn't Have a Million, Billion, Zillion Players
Linden Labs finally admits that they don't have millions and millions of people playing second life. Well to be fair I don't think they've been actively lying about it before, just... letting a wrong conclusion be implied by others because it benefitted them. In a recent interview with Venture Beat the new CEO admitted that their numbers are more along the lines of 68,000 simultanious users. I actually really like what Second Life does, I think there is a need for a free form virtual expression platform. I don't like how they get undue press from the media. Jealousy? Maybe.
