Today marks the fifth anniversary of Second Life, and we thought we'd take advantage of the day to round up some of the significant happenings in this most well-known of current-generation virtual worlds over the last twelve months.
We can by no means be comprehensive, of course, there's so much going on in Second Life on a daily basis that it would be infeasible of us to cover everything of import that took place over the last twelve months. Instead, we've picked through and tried to hit the most notable items of the last year, and break them down by sections, then analyzed it all at the end. Seeing it all like this helps give a sense of perspective that might otherwise be absent.
It is still a monster list, though, and while we've broken it down into categories, you might see a couple of items twice, where they clearly fit in more than once place.
