Of course we all know that this number only means: “one million of avatar names with valid UUIDs on Linden Lab’s database servers for Second Life” and not really “one million users”. Still, it’s a nice metric, and one nice to follow since the end of Beta in June 2003 or thereabouts. Three years later, we’ve grown from 300 users to a million users (using the same metric). It’s cool. It’s something to be remembered 🙂
Congratulations to all who believed that Cory & Philip would win their bet of having a million users before the end of the year of 2006 🙂
For myself, I was expecting a million of users only between October 20th-22th. Yahoo’s putting Second Life on their front page accelerated the change of new users.
Our next step: reaching one million users logged in the last 60 days. Let’s see if we can reach that mark by the end of the year 🙂 (highly unlikely)
