Second life? No! or How did I quit…

Actually I was never active in Second Life. I joined few months ago, created avatar, started to explore, to investigate, participated/ audit few lectures and that was all. I never had any intentions to go deeper: sell, buy, use entertainment facilities, or interacting per se with unknown people. I was usually invited to events (education content).

Second Life, beside server, metrics and other bugs, have many other failures I described here. It is column in Serbian though, for those who speak Serbian – it is realistic and full critique on SL with some stats.  It is very easy to quit something that doesn’t have the future. With simply: uninstall!


  1. I’d love to see that translated. I wish my srbski-hrvatski was up to the task!

    Hi, I read your article on b92. While I don’t play SL so, I can’t comment on it’s gaming appeal, I completely agree with you on waisting Serbian government money on SL. As a marketing strategy it simply doesn’t make sense: the Ministry of Diaspora (a useless agency on its own – like the Ministry of Silly Walk!) is advertising Serbia to the expats (like they know nothing about Serbia?!).
    I do my own share of promoting Serbia in the U.S., on my own dime, but it’s been like pulling teeth for two years. If you are interested, check out my blog at with Pannonia Linens case study and our first products on
    Anybody willing to participate in this project (anyway you can, to offer a moral support if nothing else) contact me!

    @Brian: Unless you didn’t start to learn Serbian, I’ll translate in English these days:) thanks for the comment.
    @ Alex: Thank you for sharing the same opinion and crithique on SL and some of misfits of many Ministries in Serbia. I guess every country has similar issues.
    Thansk for URl’s of projects -more than interesting and to think about. Would like to hear more, you;re in my reader.

    Alex, one question: how did you read article in Serbian?:)

    Oh, I’m a Serb! Hughart is my married name and Alex is my nickname, stemming from Aleksic. It’s much easier than having to explain and spell my name every time. Plus, Americans, being so polite, are so focused on remembering your hard-to-pronounce name, they often miss what you are saying!

    Ah, I know Americans, they kept calling me DaniKa or Danitza:)
