And again our glorious leader Ebbe produced a lot of hot air, and after reading this article we’re still as ignorant as before:
Thx to Jo Yardley for giving us her honest opinion about what Ebbe told the ZDNet reporter. I only want to elaborate on one point Ebbe made:
“We’re very fortunate to have over a decade of experience regarding what people want to do when they immerse themselves in a digital world,” Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg said.
- Ebbe himself doesn’t have over a decade of experience, he’s much too fresh with LL to know shit.
- But ok, LL as such should have over a decade of experience regarding what people want to do in SL. Sooo, why the fuck didn’t they ever act accordingly?
I guess you don’t need to be a resi in SL for very long to have figured out how lackluster LL is managing their own product. Let me just come up quickly with 2 of the most wanted attributes people really want to see in SL in order to spend even more time (and money) inworld: Lower tiers and less lag are on top of every wishlist since like forever. But instead of working on these most important goals, LL acts like they are deaf and blind. We know, everybody knows, and even Orca knows, that digital services and storage becomes cheaper and cheaper every year. Only LL aren’t able or are unwilling to relay these falling prices to their customers. And instead of making the grid bomb proof they are working on the latest – but ultimately inconsequential – shiny stuff. And now comes the cherry on top of LL’s ignorance: Sansar! That’s another project nobody was asking for, a thing we don’t have any use for in SL, a technology as far removed from SL as Mars is from Earth.
Fuck, Sansar isn’t even made for the same customer group as Second Life. But Ebbe thinks it’s a good idea to cannibalize SL for the benefit of Sansar. Because why? Because of his decade-long experience with listening to his customers? Because he knows what people want to do when they immerse in a digital world?
Seriously, what a tool. 😦
