Des nouvelles de Second Life

Je suis surpris que Michel Leblanc n'en parle pas: il y a des bonnes nouvelles au sujet de Second Life! Mais aussi des moins bonnes.

Je vois qu'il est plutôt en train de se «chicaner» avec Fabien Deglise (de Devoir, ici) et Alain Brunet (de La Presse, ici).

Les bonnes nouvelles donc:
Gartner Says 80 Percent of Active Internet Users Will Have A "Second Life" in the Virtual World by the End of 2011: "By the end of 2011, 80 percent of active Internet users (and Fortune 500 enterprises) will have a “second life”, but not necessarily in Second Life, according to Gartner, Inc."
Mais:
There are many new entrants, whose stability and scalability are not yet established. (...) Gartner recommends that enterprises should experiment with virtual worlds, but not plan massive projects, and look for community benefits rather than commerce.

Finalement, ce ne sont peut-être pas de si bonnes nouvelles que ça pour Second Life. Pour le web 3D, oui. Pour Second Life, pas sûr.

Les (sûrement) moins bonnes:
InformationWeek Shutting Down Its Second Life Office: "InformationWeek shut down its office in Second Life. We're still committed to Second Life coverage. I'm still spending a couple of hours a day in Second Life. I'm still writing lots of blogs and articles out of SL. But the office just wasn't doing anything for us, so we gave it the ax."
Oups.
