  • It would *mostly* be me watching the slow death. There are a few exceptions, but without substantial changes to how the project is managed it's at the end of life. Slow deaths are an inefficient use of taxpayer dollars and there are better technologies on which to focus attention.

  • Would NOAA being watching it die a slow death, or mostly just Eric while the potential NOAA funders went blissfully ignorant in an out of sight out of mind sort of way? I agree with your assessment, Eric. I'd rather see a quick clean finish than a lingering slide down hill for any project.

  • I completely agree Sandy. NOAA has a simple choice. Provide support for the project for rental, maintenance, and content refresh or watch their investment die a slow death. Given the current political and financial environment I'd honestly rather pull the plug and see it go humanly.

  • NOAA in Second Life
    Traffic Report
    Four Years in Review
    4/23/2007 – 7/31/2011
  • Recommendations
    The lack of funding, limited participation from NOAA staff, an inadequate maintenance policy, and decreasing visitor levels necessitate the recommendation to shut down NOAA’s presence in Second Life.
    For NOAA’s presence to stay open, it should support a maintenance plan to provide content refresh and repairs as needed.
    For NOAA’s presence to stay open, it should adopt an overall content management strategy and multi-grid extending beyond Second Life.
    For NOAA’s presence to stay open, it should engage Linden Lab in traffic promotion strategies.
