You sure did a great job of totally misunderstanding the article, I wasn’t a negative criticism of Second Life. It was a pretty interesting, in depth, balanced, critical look at the history of SL with the conclusion that in the end, it turned out to be a fairly successful platform that came into its own. You really should go back and read it again, I haven’t read an article on SL as balanced and objective as this in years. As for the oldbie creators and DJ’s you mentioned, the article was referencing and talking to them to gain perspective from the residents themselves as to why they either left or no longer engage in the way that they do and what their opinions are on why SL never managed to live up to the hype and became something else entirely. There is no point in asking a newer resident these questions as they simply wouldn’t know the answer unlike those of us who were around and engaged with SL at that time.
