Each year I try to immerse myself in a particular technology, either as a user or as a developer. This technology has preferably nothing to do with my day-job, or at least not directly. For the past year this was Second life. Today I sold all the SL real-estate that I acquired in the past year and parked my avatar permanently in The Blarney Stone Irish Bar in Dublin.
I exchanged my linden dollars for hard cash and bought myself a copy of World of Warcraft. Lets see whether I fare better with collaboration for death & destruction than in the social engineering aspects of virtual capitalism and porn.
