second life gets second wind?!

so after reading this story from cnet about second life i'm glad to hear it was down but not out (a la cam'ron song)...

the article was saying there's been a rack of execs leaving, but money is still in motion on SL and financial transactions amongst users are sound. revenue is expected to be up in '09. they also mentioned that IBM has been involved since '06 but unlike other companies/marketing dept they are still involved in a high profile kinda way.

best quote was from.... describing that you can't just drop someone in SL like you can in other social networking mediums b/c it's "it's like trying to learn World of Warcraft and Photoshop at the same time"!... not sure about WoW, but i completely understand the Photoshop analogy.
