moved to pity

QOTD: Shelley Powers on Second Life:

Every time I read a story associated with Second Life, I am moved to pity.

I keep getting bounce messages from spammers trying to send stuff to the mostly defunct idrama mailing list. Last time I sent an email to the list suggesting that it be shut down, someone asked me to write a note about why I no longer cared about computer mediated interactive drama. It's been a few years, I still haven't written that note, but I think that quote kind of sums it up.

Had the name not already taken, I was thinking of creating a massively multiplayer online game called "Half Life". It's massively multiplayer, but for some reason, you never see anyone. The graphics consist of a dingy, single room apartment with an empty refridgerator and a phone that only dials Dominos Pizza.

I've been wondering if downloadalife.com could be retasked to make some money from the 2nd life craze..
