Back in 2009, Wagner James Au wrote an article on his blog about the benefits of introducing a level-up or achievements system to SL. Unfortunately his line of thinking drew a lot of ire (see the comments section of said article). Now, with Second Life having just recently added… Continue

Attention Second Life muckety-mucks: Please read Maria Korolov's great article on Hypergrid Business, "Rod Humble: Here's how Second Life can rule the world." The article, a direct plea to the newly crowned SL CEO, touches upon some of SL's shortcomings, and provides some solid suggestions on how to overcome them. (… Continue

As many of you in Second Life may have heard by now via a pre-Christmas announcement, Rod Humble took on the reins at Linden Lab as CEO last month. When I first read that someone from Electronic Arts was taking on the helm at SL, I perked up, as I am a fan of EA games like "Dragon Age" and "Mass Effect." Humble seems a sensible hire, and the move seems to me an organic transition for him,… Continue

I happened to be googling some stuff about SL yesterday and realized the most recent update to the viewer will have alot more to offer than just a few bug fixes and a color change to the GUI. I will be sure to try the beta within the next few days.

So I decided to take Harlowe's great idea about blogging and decided to write about how my SL has changed over time.
Right now I'm just hanging out at my apartment drinking some tea. I think I'll reminisce about my life sometime this week.

So here's an update on my adventures navigating SL. New Haven is treating me quite well. I spent the evening getting familiar with my surroundings there. This is me looking pensive by the waters...
Ooh, what do we have here? Jet skis?
Of course I tried it out!
Lookin' like a pro now.

Consider my birthday July 21st - the day my creator brought yours truly, Harlowe Optera, to (Second) life! Not sure what was going through her head when she picked my starter skin, body, hair, clothes, etc... But I was born looking quite tragic with my short, blonde, soccer-mom hair, and uptight business-woman 2-piece suit. Customizing my entire appearance was a real task. Luckily, I got a friend request from Melah Carter, a colleague of Prof. Lax. Melah was fantastic. She brought me down to… Continue

You know RL obstacles always come up when you really want to do something in SL. The first TGIF of the Summer 2009 was no different. I missed my exit on the drive home - twice. I arrived at Club Sky breathless ... and more than a little late. Sorry if you came before 1:30 pm. Couldn't be helped.
We met on Club Sky deck ... in a conversation nook that I fitted out just for Sky with some new really LOUNGY chairs.
There more than a few that dropped by .... Sylvan and… Continue
