I see folks talking about Second Life and things like that, and even some of the vlogs that are captures of sessions in one MMORPG or another. I have made the command decision to never ever play one of these things, not even for one minute on a borrowed machine. The worst thing that could happen to me would be to get addicted to one of these games and begin sinking time in. I’ve decided that if I’m building things and adding value, I don’t want it to be in some damn game. I’d rather have it be in one of the things I have control and a stake in – my blog or podcast, AmigoFish or the Uplifter movement. I’m highly susceptible to being sucked into things, but dear lord let me be sucked into the right things.
