After wandering around the eerily quiet “Dell Island” on SecondLife it struck me that most of the buildings in SecondLife are built to mirror buildings in the real world, with stairs, and impenetrable walls, windows etc.
But I can fly in SecondLife and walls and stairs are just annoying. I hate landing on the roof of a building only to have to jump off it, to go an find the frikin door. C’mon, it’s the future folks, lets start designing for the environment (no weather to protect folks from) and the users capabilities (we can fly and we don’t get cold). Maybe then we can get on with some real innovative features and environments.
As for Dell Island, it was deserted and pretty uninteresting.
