show #145: an easter manifesto

I’ve rarely listened to a Drax pod cast all the way though in a long time. Generally they have been a rebroadcast of VR hype or some other type of hype. But this interview was thought provoking.

show #145.jpgjim reichert [aka illiastra] is our guest. he speaks not in his function as a microsoft employee or hololens pioneer but as the man who penned a “metaverse manifesto” of sorts.

while the neo vr crowd [jim’s term!] mingles at vrla, drax stayed put, requested permission to rename the manifesto for the season and discusses the implications of the points raised:

What Second Life Means to Willow

I am being interviewed by a reporter. In part of the interview the discussion mentioned Second Life and how I used it. While I tried to describe it in words I thought the best way was to send him a link to a video I made in 2015. So here is a link to that short video I made https://adobe.ly/2oq362a which I think will explain how I use SL. Don’t panic it takes a few seconds to load it is a full video including sound. It also automatically links to your web browser. When you see it click the right pointing arrowhead. One thing technology has not been able to do though is reproduce smells. Which I’m thankful for when I change diapers.

Things are a bit outdated but the reasons are the same. Please let me know what you think.

Couldn’t pull the plug

Not pull the plugA good Second Life (SL) friend of mine for over a decade suddenly disappeared a few weeks ago. She was the next to last person I helped get started in SL in 2005. I ask a mutual friend and she did what I almost did a year ago.

RL was getting busy so I was going to quit SL. After we got rid of all our land we were going to quit SL. So we got rid of our land but then it dawned on us. It was worth $75 a year just to keep our identity, friends, and inventory! We couldn’t pull the plug.

Over the years I’ve made too many good friends and had fun. I’ll probably be in SL till they turn the lights off.
