Dream Lyrics

November 23, 2011

Much has happened since I last blogged. I’m still working on getting my inner censor to hush up a bit more. (At which point it goes “Nah…don’t post this”) Anyway, the other night I had a dream that I woke up from. I was listening to a radio show or some such and the DJ […]

Thoughts on Anonymous

April 21, 2011

I was cleaning up my disk and found a small .rtf file from March 2009 labeled “Anon”.  In it I found these words: “We think anonymity exists, but really, except in rare cases, we leave markers to our personality and traits wherever we go.  We can only hide angles not our entire selves.” Is this […]

SL Basic/Advanced Mode Viewer Review

March 31, 2011

It seems so odd posting about Second Life again, even though that is where all of this whole web 2.0 stuff stated for me, but here it is. The other day I downloaded the latest Beta Viewer for SL which include the initial version of Basic and advanced modes.  There are a lot of things […]

Second Life and Minecraft

March 27, 2011

This post was inspired by a meeting of the meetup group currently known as Serious Second Life. We were discussing what we are working on and what our involvement currently is in Second Life. For many of us we are less involved in Second Life, while still busy in virtual environments or sometimes simply busy […]

The Time is Now

November 28, 2010

A few weeks ago my digital watch went kaput.  It’s a waterproof watch because I put my hands in water on a regular basis, and replacing the battery on those is a pain, because it usually breaks the waterproofness, and most places won’t replace it for you….because they can’t get the seal right either. At […]

Post Shattering – Views of Deathwing

November 26, 2010

After the patch that brought the Shattering dropped, I hopped onto my new mage to check out the world (and maybe level a bit.)  I logged into Orgrimmar and was immediately lost.  I had no idea where I was.  I stumbled around the city trying to figure out where everything had moved, and eventually found […]

The Socialification of Games

November 19, 2010

I think by this point the idea of “social networking” and “games” being two separate worlds has melted away with the popularity of casual games on Facebook.  Very few people who use social networking sites have not heard of Farmville or Zynga, even if they don’t play the games themselves.  We also have been seeing […]

QT: Are Touch Devices the New Paper?

November 18, 2010

My friend @alizasherman tweeted: Do you use an iPhone/iPod/iPad? Do you let your kid (under 10) use it? Tell me what you have/what they use & how old! And I was struck by how “current age” this question is. iPads/iPods and other touch devices are still relatively new. Do you give kids a chance to […]

Seesmic.tv – Hello Goodbye

November 8, 2010

Yesterday I found out that seesmic.tv is going offline. To be honest I haven’t been stopping by there, and the .tv part of seemsic is mostly a vestige of how the company originally started, so its closing makes sense. Nonetheless I find myself greatly saddened (at 2am after my dog woke me up) and so […]

A Walk About the PTR

September 29, 2010

I went on the PTR to see some of the changes such as what happens to stats that are going away, what to do the trees look like and the like. I figured that some people won’t be heading over to the PTR and might like to see what these things look like. Most of […]
