allow users to build their world

found this:

Similarly, Linden Lab assumed it would create an in-world experience for avatars to play in. It was only after programmers started using their own product they realized it would be better to allow their users to build their world for them.

Linden’s users quickly began constructing their own buildings, clothing, and nightclubs. Pleased to have their users create content, Linden tried to encourage the practice with a system of ratings. An avatar could register an endorsement of a particularly attractive home with the click of a mouse.

from The first days of Second Life

design by accident … empower users … support the community.

if one has an idea and a plan give it to the world and see what happens … follow and adopt the changes … the mob will handle it.
