Re: Graham Attwell Needs to Take a Closer Look at Second Life

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Re: Graham Attwell Needs to Take a Closer Look at Second Life

I don't recall any media push behind, say, the use of MUDs in e-learning, blogs in e-learning. Or mailing lists, or even things like Flickr or del.icio.us. So how does Second Life rate such coverage? I still think that what really distinguishes Second Life from other technology is its marketing, the very big push it's getting from mainstream media. More...
