New Friend of the Fairelands   Leave a comment

I was looking for a breakfast restaurant this morning, when my phone went off. The call was from Morgan instead of a robocall computer, so I answered; “Hey, newb, what’s happening?”

“You tell me,” Morgan said, sounding bewildered. “I was wandering around the commons up on your starbase, when a glowing blue ball popped up in front of me. It’s still here, sitting in front of me, and I can’t get away from it; it follows me around. Do you have something loose up here I need to worry about?”

Announcing some Changes – I am now a Linden Lab Employee – StrawberrySingh.com   Leave a comment

From Strawberry Singh:

There have been some changes in my real life that I wanted to share with you and be completely transparent about. I have been hired by Linden Lab as their …

This is going to be an exciting time for Berry.  We’ll miss her in the regular blogging trenches of Second Life, as I’ve already told her on her article; but I understand her feeling that, as an employee of the Lab now, she needs to put a firewall between roles.

As she notes in her article, please don’t contact her directly to solve any problems; that won’t work, and will load her down with unfulfillable requests.  File a normal ticket.  Be a nice avatar.

Under the Tuscan Sun   Leave a comment

… Stone houses, terrace walls, city walls, streets. Plant any rose and you hit four or five big ones. All the Etruscan sarcophagi with likenesses of the dead carved on top in realistic, living poses must have come out of the most natural transference into death they could imagine. After lifetimes of dealing with stone, why not, in death, turn into it? …

New World Notes: Interview With Ebbe Altberg   1 comment

(With thanks to Daniel Voyager)

Hamlet Au has written up an interview he’s done with Ebbe Altberg, Linden Lab’s CEO, and posted a video of the talk as well.  I’ll leave you to link to the article and read (and watch) it there, but I’ll interject:  it’s my belief we were lucky that the Lab, which was thrashing for direction five years ago, managed to get this man.  There may have been some jokes about the “IKEA CEO (some assembly required),” and I myself did a version of that:

But I think he’s been a godsend to Linden Lab and Second Life, and sounds committed to growing what’s old as well as supporting what’s new (Sansar).  Hopefully we’ll have him for some time to come.

On Fantasy   Leave a comment

Though I’m not much of a Game of Thrones fan — I bogged down in the first book at page 25, and I don’t get HBO — I do enjoy some parts of it. (My favorites are Daenerys and Tyrion.) And I can appreciate the work and artistry in the goodies available at the Ice and Fire event, going on for one more week.

The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams. It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real … for a moment at least … that long magic moment before we wake.

Machinima Shot at Time Portal   Leave a comment

Jemmy happened to do a piece the other day from a club located in Time Portal. As it works out, I received a message from Frau Jo Yardley, informing members of The 1920s Berlin Project about a machinima set inside the 1920s-1940s section of the region. Here it is:
