Second Life Luddites & Lazes

Honour McMillan’s post today got me thinking. There seems to be a lot of SL residents who are very insulated into their own little corner of the experience. As Honour points out there is a reluctance to learn even the most basic features common to all viewers. There is already a hue and cry over Server Side Baking and the necessity to update viewers (it will only get worse over the next few weeks as SSB rolls out to the grid).

Philip Linden once described SL as “perpetual beta”. Anyone who has been around for a while knows what he meant, there are almost continuous updates and new features. We, the residents, have some responsibility to keep up!

It is not like people are on their own. LL (and Torley Linden) have lots of video tutorials. They could drop by any Info Hub and there are links to help, sometimes even helpful people; or read Blogs; there is a list of them on the right side bar here, just click a picture. But they have to show enough interest and initiative to learn about the world we are in.

Illegitimi non carborundum
