Over time I imagine a typical person’s LATI would follow an s-curve, whereby they take a while to attract followers in the beginning, then they ramp up as word spreads, then they plateau out again as their target demographic is exhausted.

There once was a time when I thought Second Life was going to take over the world. Well, the virtual world. I was so impressed with the technology – and amazed at its availability for free! – that I saw it as an unstoppable force.
