Are you up to the challenge? Are you open to the change?
Read it and weep if not... read it and live it if so.
I cannot say it better.. Dusan Writer on the "Why" of Second Life...
You see, you don’t come to Second Life to play a game, or watch a movie, or attend a concert, or even, really, to hang out with friends. You come to Second Life because you’re ready to have your worldview challenged.
You might run a business, fall in love, hang out with friends, explore, be shaken, enriched, scared, or enlightened. But you’ll be hard-pressed to emerge unchanged.
And finally... as Dusan puts it:
Is It Hard? Hell, Yes
The future is difficult.
