Warnings and Caveats

I write about Second Life, both its pluses and minuses. I sometimes write about Social Media, or Technology, or ideas that just need to be written out. As always, feel free to comment on any post you find within (that is still within the comment time limit).

The Rental Vendor is the most important method of showing off your Available Land Rentals. But finding the right Vendor has always been a difficult choice. At least it was difficult until now. Today we introduce the Multi-Vendor family of Rental Vendors designed exclusively for Land Rentals in Second Life.

Copyright Law and Second Life

It’s no big secret that there are literally thousands of items for sale in Second Life™ that violate Copyright Law. When Mesh was added to the platform, the sudden flood of copied and otherwise ill-gotten items virtually exploded. For their part, Linden Lab has tried to keep a lid on things, but the attitude of most people using Second Life seems to be one of “everyone else is doing it.” To say it makes LL’s job harder is a gross understatement.

Today’s post comes about as a result of an interesting conversation I had with a fellow SL Resident about their intentions and opinions on Copyright Law. It was a follow-up of sorts to a post they made on the SL Forums asking for someone to help them break the law .. and my response to their post.

Project FaceSanBookSar

FaceSanBookSar

I spoke before about the two very different platform models embodied by Facebook and WordPress. Today’s post will take the Facebook perspective, present theories of how a Virtual Reality platform could be built using that model, then finish up by discussing the possible outcomes. I call it “Project FaceSanBookSar.”

It’s important to note that this post is also one of my “conjecture” essays. That means I have no insider knowledge or information, I just have a lifetime’s worth of experience doing stuff like this. Okay, disclaimer out of the way … let’s begin.

The Bridge to Project Sansar

January 6, 2016 by · 1 Comment
Filed under: Linden Lab and Second Life, Project Sansar 

Linden Lab is breaking out of their walled garden by devoting their efforts toward a new product, currently code-named Project Sansar. As high-tech product development efforts go, this one has all the secrecy and mystery of a good CIA Plot or a bad spy novel. Either way, without knowing any particulars of the project itself, we can make some very solid evaluations of their efforts and their chances of success. Perhaps even so far as to estimate how big any success might be.

Back-Handed Compliments

Filed under: DGP4SL Info, Man Behind the Curtain 

I tend to have rather sharp-edged opinions on things. As a result sometimes I make people angry. One particular person I’ve successfully angered for quite a few years is a fellow Second Life Resident only with a lot more time “alive” here. We both have pretty good word skills .. and we disagree with each other on almost everything. Sometimes vehemently. Apparently I’ve recently earned another helping of ire. Have a look:

If you’re anything like me, you “live” in an online virtual world called Second Life. Second Life was created by and is owned by Linden Lab. Linden Lab is trying to grow bigger. Linden Lab has announced their “Next Big Thing” … and it is called Project Sansar. Also if you’re anything like me, you like to spend time thinking “how things could be…”

Scratchin’ My Head … Again

December 2, 2015 by · 1 Comment
Filed under: Linden Lab and Second Life 

I just got a private message from a Moderator on the Second Life Forums. The message was to notify me that I had violated the Community Standards by using profanity in a post. Now what confuses me is that the Forums have an active “Profanity Filter” that converts all banned words into scrambled letters and asterisks. And I didn’t engage in “creative character games” to avoid said filter either. So what did I do that the filter allowed … but the Moderator didn’t?

Here’s the full message, including my original post, in screenshot format:

At any rate, here I am again … scratchin’ mah haid and wunnerin’ …

Ever go wandering around in Second Life? Do you often run into people, or are you basically wandering alone with no interruptions or encounters whatsoever? Well, I found out why. There’s no one at the helm!
