Leaving the World

I think if I leave Second Life, it will be with a whimper, rather than a bang. I don't think I really have much choice in the matter. I'm not a particularly famous person. I just sit here in my little corner of Blogger, playing in my box more or less to myself.

Eventually, the only thing left of me, the only evidence of my presence in Second Life, would be a profile inworld and this blog. Pretty scary! Even that would last only as long as Second Life and Blogger survives. If either decides to purge their systems of 'that missing person', then poof! No more Anna anywhere on the internet.

I mention this because I haven't been in Second Life since January (maybe even longer) and the updates here have become sporadic to the point of three posts a month. I read blogs and I scratch my head about what the hell people are talking about. New Viewers have cropped up everywhere, and I can't say I've tried a single one (maybe Emerald?).

I can't even keep track of the Lindens anymore. Almost all the Lindens I grew up with have left, leaving us with... new people. M Linden, and a bunch of other 'Letter Box' Lindens. 'Building Block' Lindens? And of course, new names I don't know.

Everything's changed. I feel like going back inworld is going to be a chore.

To think! After three years of Second Life citizenship, that I would find myself now coming online with as much knowledge as a common noob!
