Blog Post - When the news broke that VICE reporter Cecilia D’Anastasio was looking to hear from Second Life residents regarding avatar identity I was somewhat sceptical. My concerns were largely due to the way the wider media have reported on Second Life in the past and the way the wider media seem to like to be economic with the truth all too often these days.

However, my scepticism was definitely misplaced as Cecilia’s article is actually quite touching and respectful. The article, simply titled, Avatar IRL, looks into what Lisa Nakamura called, Identity tourism. However as we see from Cecilia’s article, avatars are not merely a mirror of ourselves, they can also be taken away from the keyboards with us.

New Blog Post - Remnants Of Earth is a cyberpunk roleplay game in Second Life and was recently covered by Hamlet Au over at New World Notes : Remnants of Earth, a User-Made MMO in Second Life.

However now news of the world has gone beyond Second Life, thanks to Hamlet Au’s post, Patricia Hernandez of Kotaku has noticed it
I took a brief look at Remnants of Earth back in February when I boldly went in search of Science Fiction action in Second Life. However it's worth revisiting again because it's now being discussed by a wider audience, even beyond the Second Life blogsphere. Remnants Of Earth is a cyberpunk ...

Blog Post - A blog post from OnLive sheds a lot more light on the Sony deal that has led to the end of SL Go.

OnLive weren't breaking even and the lifetime value of a subscriber still cost more than acquiring a subscriber.

New blog post - It was a normal Wednesday, I was sat in a building in Meauxle Bureaux going through my to do list, plan for Fantasy Faire, take photos,plot virtual world domination, you know, nothing out of the ordinary, when my peace was rudely shattered by a dancing flashmob led by none other than Xiola Linden!  

There’s only one thing a self respecting Dwarfin King can do when faced by a mob like this, run for your life!
