    The biggest barrier to mesh creation for me, is I can only stand, not having any alt-zooming. walking and flying in blender for one minute, then I have to throw in the towel again.

      alt-zooming – can’t live without it either…..

    So you mention the fact that most people do not build. I think that observation may be flawed. While it is true that most people do not build, from my experience, it is also true that most people tell me that they want to learn how to build. They may eventually never do so, but the fact that they could be builders one day, is what makes SL interesting for them.

      I could NOT agree more with this point! Any VW going forward needs to prioritize the possibility for EVERYONE to be at the table in terms of creation!
