SL Exchange: The End of Malls?

So, until LL introduces Google-style searching inside SL, what is your alternative to shopping?

Enter SL Exchange (or, if you wish, it’s nearest competitor, Second Server). This is a mix of Amazon and eBay for Second Life®. Or, if you prefer, it’s a site where you can browse among over 3500 items (at the time I’m writing this) and get them delivered in-world – paying in L$!

This is not “rocket science” – the technology for doing it (using email and XML/RPC) has been around in SL for over an year. However, perhaps it reminds too much of the way people use to shop for stuff for The Sims, and that’s perhaps a “psychological” reason for not having it appear sooner in SL.
