Re-Vlog :: My Buddy Clark of is in SL. Know Clark Saturn from the Vlogosphere. He's one helluva guy. His regular vlog always surprises. Mr. Saturn often reads from the Tao Te Ching, writes and plays his own music, and at least used to do "naked Fridays" that always gave me a tingle.

We've been out of touch for a while since he moved upstate and will any day now be a father.

This is the first of his machinima I've seen.

Way to go, Clark.

Ban Lines :: No Entry!

From the Grid

Gah. Ugly. Ugly.

Seeing "No Entry" scripts makes being in SL suck. Might as well be in the real world.

Thank, Ordinal, for ramping up the discussion.

This bust of Nikola Tesla appears in front of the church that sits between 5th and 6th Avenues on the north side of 25th St. in New York City.

As a steampunk wannabe in Second Life, thought it would be appropriate to share.

Meta Metaverse :: Machinima Advertising

Thanks to Twitter-pal Prokofy Neva, this video.

Does that make this vlog post 'meta-meta-metaverse'? I think so.

Finally :: An Alternative to Text Chat in SL

Yes! I'm bored with text. It's too slow and furthermore, texting leads to misunderstanding. Here's to emotional information.

We spoke tonight…

Johnny Ming with Voice

A year ago at GDC I met with the folks from Vivox which resulted in the blog entry, Voice you on Sheep Island. So it is with great satisfaction that a year later, Linden Lab has announced VOIP integration with SL and tonight the SL Voice beta group was invited to give it a try. The client ran awesome (on my Intel Mac), the voice quality is better than Skype, the 3D proximity chat works great and the experience was amazing.

Lovely to see the amazing Miss Malaprop again, and to learn she's creating and building as ever many magical things in Second Life. She's making machinima, too.

Power Move for Ze Frank

From Second Life. This is an example of the heart of viral advertising, people. Move a community to bring the best parts of themselves forward. Ze Fuckin' Frank gets it. Not everybody has what it takes to build a community. It is a rare and beautiful thing. Jay Dedman's got it, too. This kind of leader is charisma on crack. This is something that cannot be taught, bought or bottled. Valuable on the scale of supply & demand. Ze Frank moves me. I'd sooner be addicted to movement than sugar.
