i want second life on my iphoneFebruary 21, 2008
okay, first, i want an iphone. us Canucks can use them but only with some hacking, and as techie as i like to think i am, really i just like to play with the toys, not program them.
i love this idea in principle – especially given the number of educational resources in SL. if i’m late for my SL class/meeting i can access it while i’m sitting on the bus in traffic. awesome.
but part of the fun of SL is that it is an environment which is visually stimulating – how are they going to maintain that on a teeny mobile screen?
and how big is your av going to be?
and the chat – my gawd – the chat!
and while i’m sitting on the bus in RL attending my meeting in SL, will i be sitting next to someone in RL who is doing naughty sexy-time things in SL?
and if i lose my phone, does this mean that i’m vulnerable to having my SL account hijacked? (not Jambina – no!!!)
all this being said, if i had a phone with a big enough screen (maybe the MLIS graduation fairy will bring me one) i’d probably try it out. but that’s because i’m an SL junkie.
