You'd think we were dealing with the Greek debt issue the way conversation has been regarding Viewer 2.0 (also known as the CryPad and SLVistaViewer.) Besides all the functional difficulties with it there is its 'non-immersive' quality. It appears to be the "You Tube" version of SecondLife. My handler says it doesn't bother him but it's me living in a virtual world not him.

Viewer 2.0 makes me think the M in M. Linden stands for 'mistake.' And mistakes aren't something we can well afford as SecondLifers right now.

Think of this 'Zynga' the Facebook game maker (I think the founders aren't old enough to get off the Teen Grid.) has sold $480,000,000 (dollars...not Linden) of Virtual Merchandise over the past year. Now that's a lot of sculptie skirts.

I've heard, rumor, Microsoft's X-box players get a still cartoon image for their player. Apparently, last year, they bought little emblems (school, football, baseball) of teams they like to stick on their breast pocket. Total dollar sales for MSFT $250,000,000

Three years ago I remember firstlife friends in shocked disbelief (no not because of my avie) but when I said I owned virtual land and bought virtual clothes. Well, those numbers above simply shout out, "Who's laughing now."

If only SL was a web based immersive world tied to the various social networks. Example, when you opened Facebook a small window below would actually be you in SL and you could maximize that if you wanted to. No need to download a program.

And, when virtual merchandise has a 'digital watermark' and therefore can be 'owned' by the buyer to keep or sell we will see 'virtual merchandise' trading at Sotheby's and/or Christie's auction houses for serious money. (Ok.....maybe not them but you get the idea. Everything you buy would be YOURS' to wear, stain, keep or sell.

Perhaps there will be a day when my SL avie can walk into WOW (World of Warcraft) and ask, "Do you know where I can get inoculated against the 'corrupted blood plague' or do you know where the "WalMart" store is in WOW (yes WalMart is getting into the Virtual clothing business.)

Anyhow, thanks to all of you who support me regularly and for those who made my 300th show on Tuesday. I ended the Third Season and am now doing only 'specials' and 'reruns' until September 1st when LaurenLive will start the "Fourth Season" Don't forget, if you missed a show go to LaurenLive@Treet.TV and if you want to email me Lauren's Mailbox

FirstLife vs SecondLife

FL - Carry-on luggage has an additional charge and the size keeps getting smaller (airplane)
SL - Take your entire inventory with you when you fly or teleport.

don't you prefer having all 3,000 of your dresses and 3,000 pair of shoes with you when you travel. Only in SL is that possible. You can take your fine jewelry with you and not worry about losing it.

FL - monthly credit card statement
SL - pay as you go

You can't buy something in SL unless you have the Lindens so there is no tears with a monthly statement. And remember, it's not your spending in SL that's a problem, it's the monthly statement you get in FirstLife.

FL - diet, exercise, eat no sugar, eat no fat and still you look like a People Magazine reject.
SL - eat all the SecondLife chocolates. Enjoy the Southern Fried chicken. Slide bar left.

Okay this should be real simple thought. If you can't figure out which is better you don't need bleach.

FL - Divorce is a lengthy and costly experience.
SL - De-partnering is 25L and you don't even have to talk to him to get it done.

In Firstlife the fight over the dog is way too much and when he says, "do you know how much I spent on you," especially at the wrong time of the month looking for the hammer in his tool kit is way too much energy expended on a jerk. But, in SecondLife you may still be emotionally broken but you can immediately go out clubbing and not worry about the weight you gained during the relationship.

FL - You find the perfect skirt and the right shoes to go with the outfit you've been putting together but they don't have your size.
SL - The store is never out of your size.

There's even more delightful aspects of this. You can alter your clothing right away and be at the ball the same night. And should you find yourself at his house the next morning with your dress crumpled on the floor you can simply get HOME and you don't have to worry if you took your makeup off and you don't need to send the dress to the dry cleaners which in FirstLife could cost you $50 (unless you were wearing suede, then it will cost you the same price you paid for the skirt to have it cleaned.)

Remember these few thoughts the next time you are complaining about the problems of SecondLife. SecondLife will always have issues but so does FirstLife. Both should be viewed for their joys and the nice thing is, what doesn't work in FirstLife usually does in SecondLife.
