It was yesterday, April 17th, 2006, around 5 PM PST (in-world time), that Second Life saw its 200,000th active resident join in!
Snapshot from the Second Life home page, taken several hours afterwards…
The amazing bit is that Second Life took something near 2 years to reach their first 100,000 users, but just 4 months for doubling that figure.
Congratulations, Linden Lab!
Let’s see if you make your goal of reaching a million users by the end of this year. If you can double the population every 4 months, that will be almost possible!
