I like to talk. And write poetry. I paint a little too.

Four Months Later

It's a good job Blogger doesn't fine you for not updating regularly.

I thought I would stick a bit in here about Second Life, since the author of Pattern Recognition, William Gibson, has a new book out and actually went virtual last night, reading from it and answering questions in Second Life. And it's all on You Tube!

He says in his blog that all he had to learn, really, was how to sit down in Second Life... the rest was easy.

A couple of my friends were there. I was detained in First Life, where I had to hand out laundry keys to real people.

Well, by the looks of that video, you didn't miss much (as far as video experiences go, that is). I didn't really listen to what he was saying, but visually, it was like watching paint dry. I'm sure handing out keys was much more interesting.

I was supposed to have a reserved seat for the event (due to participation in the avatar and container contests) and couldn't get in to the virtual venue, and was forced to listen to it from a remote site in SL.

Always fun to hear Gibson reading and asking questions, but I would have preferred a webcam! (Although it was a bit fun joking around with some guy named Spider while Gibson was fielding the usual questions)

Hi Peter,
I know.
The place is in its infancy.
I just ride swans mostly, and teleport or fly a lot.
His hair freaked us out :)

FashPo,
At least you went!
What I like is that people can take snapshots. Did you get one of Spider?

I got kicked out of the main place too.

I liked the swan!
