Hobbiton

Faire Folk, there be Dragons

Yes. I am going to talk about machinima, or: short online videos you can produce when in Second Life. Social Media as a whole is a very visual world. Pictures win from text, videos win from pictures. This does not, by all means, imply you need to stop writing…

What Second Life means to me


Today Xiola Linden posted a blog and a thread,  for Second Life’s 12th anniversary, including a YouTube videoclip with theme’What Second Life means to me’.  A wonderful video, made by Torley, and within minutes Strawberry Singh posted hers – made by Draxtor. The idea is, to have residents make a video and share their view…
