A delusion, in everyday language, is a fixed belief that is either false, fanciful, or derived from deception……
“The other key short term goal is to very rapidly make Viewer 2.x the best and most widely-used Second Life viewer. We are unifying efforts across the lab to make this viewer both the best-performing and the most functionally capable for all different users, as well as hopefully becoming the underlying codebase for lots of third party development.”
Now, I accept that I am no expert, but…. if you release a product that is the most dismal failure, and, in spite of the fact that more than 50% of your customers refuse to use it… you carry on , determined that it is basically all right “just needs a few tweaks”…..well, I would say you are delusional.
“Give a dog a bad name…” is an old english saying, the second part of the saying is…. ” and shoot it”. I am sure, beyond doubt, that any marketing ‘expert’ would say that from the initial release of Viewer 2.0 and its reception there is no way on Earth to make it the “best and most widely-used Second Life viewer”. That is not just optimistic enthusiasm, that is delusive.
In fact, it has gone so badly wrong that call it Viewer 3.0, or 4.0, you have and will always have lost a HUGE percentage of users. people with long memories, “once bitten, twice shy” as we are exploring the folkiness of the english language…..
….and, if you can’t as CEO understand this, and are still..”unifying efforts across the lab to make this viewer both the best-performing and the most functionally capable for all different users”…. then you are continuing to waste time and money.
Luckily, not mine…
