Then I heard a nasty rumor; that he was going to talk about Second Life. CSI had done some story that drove viewers to Linden Lab's little 3D world. Oh man, thinks I. Hearing non-games media folks wax about Second Life is like listening to Uncool Uncle Joe getting all enthusiastic about "rap music." Second Life is what non-games people think of as the future, whereas games people see it very differently.
I even made a bet with some fellow journo that if he mentioned Second Life within the first two minutes of the presentation, I was gone."
