I’ve only recently discovered the Mass Customization & Open Innovation News website/blog; it’s a nice resource. What I’ve not yet seen mentioned (and which a search of the site seems to confirm) is any notice of Second Life. That is until now. The good folks as the Mass-Custom site have posted an entry (Link) referring to an article on Wired concerning Linden Lab (Link).
There’s nothing much said in their entry, but I’ll be watching to see if the site begins to come to some of the conclusions I’ve already discussed here and elsewhere… especially concerning the eventual merging of PLM and MMORPG’s (reLink). This is, in my opinion, bigger than “crowd-sourcing” (which really isn’t a new concept afaic; videogame modders have been doing a kind of crowd-sourcing for years).
