BREAKING NEWS: @SecondLie Jumps the Shark

In his opening remarks at the Second Life Community Convention (SLCC), Philip Rosedale recounted the time in which speculators were convinced that Second Life had "jumped the shark". The audience chuckled, nodded and tried to recall where they were on that fateful day.

Jumping the shark is a fate known to many, Rosedale and the tribe of Residents were happy to escape.  

But not everyone is so lucky. 

In one fell swoop today, the parody twitter account known as @SecondLie moved swiftly from up and comer to the undesirable position of shark jumper thanks to John Lester, formerly known as Pathfinder Linden, who announced his love for @SecondLie as part of his awesome SLCC keynote.

Good riddance @SecondLie, and thanks for all the alpacas.
