Why Second Life is like Wikipedia

Felixx Shepherd owns this land. No one made him buy this land. No massive company like Google or Facebook gave him plans for building such an amazing place. He just built it. And thousands of other people have just built it. And like Wikipedia over time what they have created is greater than anything that could be planned out. Emergent property. SL is now the size of a medium sized US city, built in under 10 years by the emergent activity of thousands of participants. Wikipedia and Second Life are the two great Open Community projects of Web 2.0.
