...are we already seeing the early sign of a Virtual Worlds downturn that may lead to a "winter" as severe as the one in the period 2000-2003?
...if this is so, what can we do to head off or reduce the slope of a new downturn? If the infamous "chasm" lies before us, and not back in 2000-2003, then what can we do to sling a rope bridge over it?
Nothing. Don't even try.
Seriously, why don't you just cross everyone up and skip directly to the 2015-2018 virtual world bubble?
