I'm the Phoenix Firestorm Project's new marketing manager. My job, in a nutshell, is to persuade potential new users to try Second Life. I'll do that by attracting people to the Firestorm Community Gateway.
Much too often, we offer too much advice and too little understanding. We talk much too much and listen so very little. How about this for some advice to the givers of advice: If you hope to change minds, if you want to help, if you want to give advice, seek first to understand, before being understood.
Ebbe Altberg answered questions at the first LabChat show. The DraxFiles Radio Hour aired the show today. For the full recording, check out today's DFRH. I understand organisers will make a full transcript available in a day or two. As I was listening, I made notes (as I tend to do when I listen to these types of things), and thought I'd share them with you if you felt like reading about what he said. It will take about 7 minutes, in case you don't want to spend the hour + listening to the show (although I encourage you to listen to the show as well!)
I can empathise with what the people of France must be going through the day after such heinous acts against hundreds of innocent people of Paris, yet I worry when world leaders say things like this: "We are going to lead a war which will be pitiless."
This weekend I launched guided tours of the Basilique region. The thirty minute tours run continuously – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – and cover every major sight at Basilique, complete with historical references, stories behind past residents and locations, and other interesting references to what visitors can do at Basilique. Julietford, one of my scripted agents (bots), delivers the tours.
Join us at the Basilique Playhouse on Saturday, November 14th at 1pm and 5pm SLT for an early celebration of Festa della Salute, Basilique style. [...]
Ambient sound is an integral part of experiencing simulated environments, not only because it significantly adds to a feeling of immersiveness, but many people are in Second Life without their music turned on. Silence makes a place feel dead.
For for those of you who might have not seen my most recent posts on SL Blogger Support, I've made and shared two blog post checklists that might help you before and after you publish a post.
I can scarcely believe I’ve hosted weekly Basilique Chat Salons for over a year and a half! In that time, we’ve covered a vast array of topics, from avatar appearances, to in world relationships, to how we spend our time, to why we enjoy spending time in Second Life.
I’ve been a bit busy lately and failed to notice that MORE Magazine published an interview I gave in the summer as their cover story here. I’d like to send out a big thanks to Lacy Muircastle for sharing my answers to her questions about Basilique, Paradise Lost, and yours truly.
