Walking Through SL11B

I’ve spent some time this week “Walking Through SL11B” - pretty AMAZING!

I’ve visited Second Life’s 11th Birthday celebration a couple times so far this week. This year is clearly the year when Mesh rules! The level of detail that Mesh objects provides is truly astounding. And despite the disenfranchisement of all the peeps who enjoyed working with Prim objects, there is little doubt that top Mesh content creators are changing SL forever, and for the better.

It’s Like This…

It’s Like This…

I got an email from Microsoft’s Bing, it’s their 5th anniversary. Along with the email was a link to Bing Gallery, and I saw a pic I liked. I started browsing then I saw this picture I really, really like. It reminded me about how I feel about my second life right now.

How committed are you in Second Life?

How committed are you in Second Life?

Yordie:

This is a post by Canary Beck. I think many Second Life people confront this issue and this is a good perspective to think about.

I was struggling with a topic for this Wednesday’s Basilique Chat Salon – not from a lack of ideas – I’ve got a queue of them. Rather, none of them was working for me. I just couldn’t commit. I was *this*close to saying “Oh, sod…

My Blogging Journey

Strawberry Singh has a blogger challenge that triggered my urge to write a bit, its called “My Blogging Journey Challenge” (Check it yo!). Anyway, here’s my responses to the challenge.

1. Which electronic devices do you use to blog with?
I use my desktop computer most of the time for writing, but use my laptop from time to time. I’ve used my iPad for a couple posts but I don’t like it for writing,…

Lucky Seven

It’s “Lucky Seven” for Yordie Sands, seven years in SL. #SecondLife

I got an IM from a friend in Second Life today wishing me a happy Rez day. Yeah, this closes my 7th year in SL, even though I haven’t really been inworld much in the past year.

Yordie Sands next year is very unclear as…

Linden Lab is Headless Again

It’s old news now, but I just learned this morning that Linden Lab’s CEO, Rod Humble, left his job at the Lab about two weeks ago. And apparently Will Wright, a close associate of Rod’s, has left the Linden Lab Board of Directors. There’s no CEO and…
