So far, everything is still hunky dorey in my computing life. My experience with Second Life hasn't changed. I'm still busy beavering away at the Second Life Enquirer, chasing up and writing articles and trying to keep Lanai sober enough to pay me for past work. A lot of people have been a bit ...

Texas to New York and back again. Matt's keen observations are only matched by his musical abilities. Matt brings you originals and covers, marching to a drummer unlike that of most other artists in SL. Feel the beat?

Joe Rizzo 12PM Joe makes me feel like I'm in Golden Gate Park or strolling down Haight St. when all the tourists have gone home. His style draws on so many elements while remaining rooted in everything that is the best about Bay Area, California.

I like facebook. It can be a useful tool. I suppose you could code these analytics on a web site. But it wouldn't be easy. I advertise the events sponsored by NMA on this facebook community page along with Sun & Moon events on SL. 

I recognized that Fuschia's art during Echo's set may entice people to Open Sims. I never expected to hear anyone in SL admit to their sparked interest. But I did.

This is a snap shot, if you will, of the people reading the page over the last 28 days.
