What a day!

A day full of oddities. Some sad, some amusing.

First out. Snow, lots of it! The Aussie expat keeps repeating, louder and louder, to himself mostly I think, maybe it calms him down (I’m so in trouble when he will read this) but sometimes he includes me and the cat too. “We will all die. The white stuff is here again! 10 minus Celsius?! We will all die! …”

I listened briefly to the news and heard some comments about that someone had driven a train straight in to a house. A house?! A train?! I thought, I must have misheard. I listen further to the news as I was working on some new ideas in Second Life. It was true. Believe it or not, someone had stolen (!) a train and crashed it into a house. Luckily no one was seriously injured. But, a train, why? It isn’t like to steal a sport-scar, really. But I guess, if you are going to do something, you better do it properly. Unfortunately there was a house in the way …

I continued to work and again the news got my attention. A wolf in the centre of the city close to where we live had been spotted. I laughed to myself, thinking, aha, the “I seen the wolf rumour” has spread to our city too. There were reports of a wolf further down south last week, which in itself is rather unusual. Therefore my thoughts were, people will start to see wolfs in each corner now I suppose. But the reports kept coming on the local radio station and I realized it was actually yet another wolf they spotted. How nice, one of my favourite animals, although very rare and almost died out  in Sweden a couple of years ago because of the massive hunt of them.

Then to the more sad news, the biggest car crash I ever heard of in the south of Sweden. They reported about 100 cars was involved, 15-20 people injured and suspicions of 3 dead. I just saw the late evening news and the chaos was horrifying. It is hard to imagine it is real, even after seeing the mess on the television. Apparently the highway was extremely icy and the fog so thick they couldn’t see more then a couple of meter in front of them. But 100 cars? It is hard to take in. My thoughts are with those affected.

So little it takes and everything changes.
Carpe diem.

Second Life versus Facebook?

Second Life versus Facebook? "Death" of social media networkThe Second Life group Swedish People in SL sent out a message informing that a popular Swedish newspaper had an article about Second Life (link in English … or at least an attempt by Google translate). The main theme of the article is the “death” of social media networks and in particular it highlights Facebook, Myspace and Second Life among others.

The first I noticed was the odd combination of social media networks to compare. As I see it, the networks mentioned aim at totally different users, I would doubt that Facebook and Myspace has the same target groups as Second Life. My experience is that Facebook and Myspace is more aimed towards kids and teenagers, whereas Second Life has a much wider audience both  as for age and geographical location.

The journalist also spice it up with adding a bunch of social media networks exclusively for Sweden that started off quite strongly but later on died out. If to compare something, at least a fair deal would be to have similar target groups as for age and geographical location. I started to read the article with interest but quickly got annoyed of what I feel is just empty words without any statistical fact behind the statements.

I firmly believe it is hard to compare Second Life to any of the social media that is mentioned in the article. Second Life is obviously a way to communicate, to connect, a social network simply. But, the big difference is, that Second Life provides so much more depth and possibilities, that a comparison between Facebook and Second Life becomes just ridiculous  Or, perhaps you can create and design buildings, avatars, clothes … and similar in Facebook now?

I believe all these negative predictions are wrong. I believe that Second Life does have a future and all the changes and new possibilities I saw highlighted in Second Life featured news from their official blog the other day proves me right. Second Life is developing and will provide even more opportunities.

To summarize, the definition of crisis doesn’t mean per default a negative development  A crisis is a turning point, a change, for worse … or for better! I believe the changes we are experiencing in Second Life right now, is just that. Through the crisis something better is developing.

Looking forward to 2013!

Merry Christmas!

Although we already have celebrated Christmas in Sweden (24th of December), I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of the Second Life friends and followers a Merry Christmas!
