Yet another article pointing out how impractical it is to, say, order a pizza via Second Life. What makes it worse is that Skribe goes through a mini-history of pushing the tech. envelope for such mundane tasks...but not far enough to evoke how difficult doing this (now a routine thing) was when the Internet was in its nascent stage. The Metaverse will evolve, these complaints (which sound a lot like those of 20 years ago) will be addressed, and the Metaverse will emerge as the new Internet platform. I can't judge intent. If the intent was "wishlist/bug fix" in nature, then this is fine. But if, as I suspect, this is a whine that states the obvious, then I just lost 5 minutes I'll never get back... ;-)
