DAVID D. EWALT — Here's the ultimate problem with Second Life: unless you're some kind of sexual deviant who gets off by pretending to be a diaper-wearing man-fox, it's boring as hell. If I want to chat with people, I can do it in IM without having to deal with lag, annoying ambient music, and all manner of freaks of nature. If I want to see cool imaginary worlds, I'll watch a movie. And if I want to really nerd out and pretend I'm some sort of fantastic creature, I'll stick with my Night Elf rogue, thank you.
