  1. Okay, I follow you on Twitter and usually love your blog posts, Daniel. But c’mon…

    Listing something that was already (and officially announced) is not a “prediction”. So “Mesh will finally come to the grid” is an announced intention, not a prediction. However, “search will finally work” can be a prediction, but that’s relative. Your lists are usually a lot more thoughtful than this. You are slipping, my friend!

    A good definition of prediction is “Linden Lab allows gaming to return to the grid, even if in a limited way”.

    So, based on this new definition all the SL bloggers are participating in, I have a prediction: “SL will get a new CEO early in the year and his name will be Donnie… Or something close.”



  2. @Thorgal: Yes, it’s that time of year again.
    @soror: I always play it safe. lol
    @Crap: It sure will be close & interesting to see what happens next year with a New CEO on-board the ship. 🙂
    @Bashful Pixie: Thanks for following me on Twitter and being supportive. I see what you are saying and I understand that. *makes improvements*
