I think that cybercultural environment is waning is SL. Thankfully, despite the small size, it's beginning to take root in Inworldz and as the bugs are fixed there it feels a lot like the old SL but on the frontier. Leaving SL for Inworldz reminds me of way back when I left the controlled, expensive corporate AOL for the wide, wild internet. SL is intentionally moving towards becoming "a game" and in the process actively moving against some of the most important aspects of its former status as a leader in co-imagined user creativity. Particularly revealing was the decision to flood the grid with underaged residents while simultaneously doubling tier for the non-profit orgs who gave so much to SL's cyber-culture. That was it for me. It's sad and difficult to leave friends and inventory behind. But frankly, it's worth it!
