Thanks for covering this very engaging panel. One correction: Craig Sherman was unable to attend. In his place, Charles Hudson of Gaia Online was kind enough to participate.

the argument comparing SL to the web, saying that on the web there are more people who go after stuff that other people made instead of making the stuff themselves kidna confused me, is it trying to say SL is going the wrong direction? cause for me it seems SL is going just about the same way as the web has been, tools for users creating content aswell as means for other users to access that content, I would think that doing it like the web would be a winning choice (though the thign about people mistakenly thinking it is a game/toy does get in the way, from both sides, the gamers get disapointed cause they expect it to be just a game and not somthign with more possibilities, and the busyness people (not sure what to call them, the companies and such) tend to dismiss it for basicly that same reason)

Thanks for your recap and comments about the panel! One thing I failed to mention is that I believe Entropia Universe http://www.entropiauniverse.com is in the sweet spot between Second Life & World of Warcraft. We're a virtual world (and virtual world platform) with a lot of the freeform fun of that end of the spectrum, the social networking components, single instance of the world, people from over 200 different countries playing together, etc. And we have the fun, the context and the things to do of a very fun game world. Overall I believe this panel of great folks raised very worthwhile questions and I thank everyone on the panel, at the conference, and online who are engaging in our evolution!
