Thing15 - Games
I chose 2nd Life out of curiosity about it. I was fascinated by it but felt like it was a huge commitment in terms of time, bandwidth, and complexity -- I created a cute avatar, learned to fly, visited some interesting sites and participated in an online event at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC -- but I didn't have much luck negotiating the various libraries or attending any library events. Also I didn't think it was really worth my time to invest any more energy in it at this point since gaming doesn't have much interest to me in general. Now if it was an opportunity to try out Wii -- that might be a different story. I think that type of gaming may well have a future in my life -- and for libraries.
