Second Life Hype

I just saw this on TechCrunch and I think it illustrates how overhyped Second Life is.
I’m a Second Life fan, but sometimes the hype gets to be a little too much. At any given time up to 20,000 or so people are logged in to the service…. Today, it’s the playground for just a few hard core users who can live with an annoying server lag…Second Life is a really fancy hosting business, since their main revenue source is renting servers for people who buy islands and other real estate. |TechCrunch|

I played with Second Life for a while, but as someone who is used to video game responsiveness, I thought the server lag was beyond infuriating.
