Localization in SL
As the world continues to expand it has been predicted that at some point we'll start to see a pattern of locality begin to emerge. The idea is that the world will become too big to inhabit as a single place which would result in avatars that roam a selected number of sims. Essentially we'd see SL breaking off from being one place to being many places distinct from eachother in some way.
Considering some of the cultural trends and the growing sense of isolation I feel in-world already, I'm curious to know if this has happened already. Have pockets begun to form in the fabric of SL society? Are there indicators available to test?
If anyone would like to join me, I'd like to start a group/thinktank to find ways to analyze and test these observations in more scientific detail (or pseudo-scientific at any rate). Contrary points of view are warmly welcomed as well as I am a fan of practical dialectic. I also have resources to commit to this project if there is any interest.
