Just for a bit of fun I have put together a list of 10 SL Linked Predictions for 2010. It would be great to hear what you think and what your own predictions are !! Happy 2010!!

1. Mesh Imports will become possible from the likes of Blender, 3DS Max and MAYA.

2. Blue Mars will become a viable competitor to Second life

3. Philip Linden will launch a BETA version of "LOVE MACHINE"

4. Linden Lab will be bought out

5. Super Sim - A sim will be made available that is much larger than the current size

6. 100000 resident concurrency will be achieved

7. Teen Grid will disappear and age limit for Main Grid will lower, possibly to 13
8. HTML and Flash will be able to be placed on a prim

9. Integration of Facebook & Twitter into the Client

10. Texture Painting for Terrain will be made possible

Some I think are probably more wishes than predictions, but it will be amusing to see what occurs over the next twelve months!!


  1. Thanks Dan, lets see how way off I am this time next year :)

  2. Good predictions, Drift! what order will these occur? Go on..impress me! :-P I think the first one to appear will be : 9. Integration of Facebook & Twitter into the Client.
