Who Should Be Second Life Newser's Man (or Woman) of The Year?
Time Magazine just announced their Man of the Year: Donald Trump. This is an annual tradition of theirs going back since they first gave the title to Charles Lindbergh in 1927, the man, woman, or sometimes group of people or object, whom they feel had the most impact in the news in the past year for good or ill. While often seen as a badge of honor, the title has on occasion gone to some villainous figures such as Joseph Stalin and Ayatollah Khomeini. And once in a while it goes to an object, such as the computer.
But what about Second Life? Who here has had the most impact in the news about the virtual world?
There's been no shortage of news in the past year from the chance to lower sim tiers to increases in prim capacity, to the development of Project Sansar, to two sims returning to the Grid, to political groups and the drama between some, to some noted residents who had their goodbyes, and charity groups such as the Relay for Life.
This will be the third time the Newser has given the title. In 2014, the new CEO of Linden Lab Ebbe Linden was the Man of the Year. In 2015, the residents of Steelhead were the Community of the Year. Who would have been declared it in the past? We did comment about whom would likely have.
So who do you the readers think made the most difference in the news in Second Life this year? Please leave us your opinions below.
