New quarter bet watch
Second Life passes 7 million registered user-mark
In april I ran a short story on growth predictions for Second Life. It featured Reuben Steiger's (Millions of Us) predictions for 2007 and forecasted that in july 2007 there would be 3.5 million registered users.
At that time there were already 5.6 million users and I forecasted 7.5 by july 07. Well, surely forecasts are always easier to make 2 months in advance than a year, but right now Second Life passed the 7 million mark, so 7.5 still seems an achievable target.
I think the growthrate for SL will lose a bit of momentum in the next 3 months, but 10 million should be the goal for october 07
