There.com has been out since the beginning of the year, and there have been plenty of articles (both good and bad) about the virtual online community, where you just sorta hang out and (There.com's management hopes) spend very real dollars on virtual clothing and other digitized goods. So, I'm a bit confused to hear that There.com is supposed to be launching today. Apparently, the original launch was just a beta launch, and now it's coming out for real - along with (I'm sure) plenty of publicity. Maybe it will be a hit this time, but it seems just like every other 3D virtual world that has launched over the past five or six years. They get some excitement at first, but never enough attention or users (or money) to stay alive.
