Crushed velvet curtains and lava lamps

In a provocative post on the Ancient Geeks blog,
I expect that some sort of virtual world will be seriously mainstream in the future, maybe even a killer app for education, but I’m sure that it will be very different from SL, which we’ll remember the way we now look back at crushed velvet curtains and lava lamps.

I appreciate the thoughtful response, Art/Andy. I also thank you for giving a presentation about SL which was really helpful, and very honest about its strengths and weaknesses. I'm convinced that it's tremendously culturally significant (whatever its educational merit) and also that we need people like you to future-watch its developments.
