Nine Lives, uh, Years Old

9th-anniversary-jpg

A little late — I actually joined Second Life on October 11, 2007 — but better now than never; I always try to make my rezz day article, as well as the blog’s anniversary.

And, when you get to nine years old in Second Life, you’re allowed to let things slide a little, depending on how minor or major they are.  You’ve hung around longer than most of the Residents you meet now, instead of being up there not much younger than most.  Comparatively, I should be having grey streaks in my hair now.

But I think I’ll stay looking the way I am for now — at least, until Bento really comes through, and then I may finally invest in a Bento-capable head.

Any road, it’s been an interesting run so far, and I’m looking forward to the next year, as always.  The more fearful may ask why, when Sansar hangs over the Grid as it does; but I’m willing to believe Ebbe Altberg for now when he says SL won’t be terminated.  And, truthfully, I can’t see any reason offhand SL would be turned off, save for a sudden mass migration of avatars to the new platform.  For now, at least, with all the investment we have here in our world, I think only the fearful or terminal “new-thing” avatar will pull up all the stakes they’ve put down — or the Resident who’s so new that they don’t have that many roots in the virtual soil yet.  For me, for now, I am content.  And so I say I’ll see you back here in a year — hopefully on time next year! — still wandering around, and celebrating my tenth.
