I suppose I’m something of a Luddite at times. Considering the industry in which I have made my professional career and a majority of my income, you’d think I would get with the program and participate more than most people. But frankly .. I don’t. I just don’t see the point in it. It annoys me, over and over and over again until I’m forced to close the web page and go do something else.
I just HATE those damn “Like” buttons!
Filed under: Linden Lab and Second Life, The Project to Save Second Life
When I first began participating in the Second Life Forums, the one behavior that most infuriated me in the way Linden Lab went about their jobs was to make massive, sometimes world-shaking changes to the Second Life platform seemingly without the least bit of consultation or consideration with the end-user community. They would release massive changes in the customer’s operation of the product, frequently without the least bit of notice or announcement about the changes. People would log on, run into problems or flat-out roadblocks to the way they’d always used SL .. and seldom could they find any explanation about the change anywhere on Linden Lab’s web sites. If there has been an albatross around the Lab’s neck, it has always been that bull-headed habit of doing whatever they damn well please without the least bit of consideration for how it affected the people that use and PAY FOR the Second Life product.
