in sl, a public library is not really public

We’re rapidly coming to a point where far from being a treasure trove of openness and accessibility, the private island system is only perpetuating the “walled garden” or “country club” aspect of life that we were supposed to be getting away from by coming on the Internet in the first place! The Second Life Library 2.0 is a failure exemplifying the failure of the Lindens’ original Mainland vision of open and diverse space. They need to “control their parcel” and keep out people like Prokofy Neva who might not pay their library fines.
i think profky is right in pointing out many of the problems of the private island system in sl and the issues with public resources or lack thereof.
