Some Brief and Current Affairs

I am compelled by general sloth to offer up a few morsels from around what I have learnt has been termed the "SLogosphere". The previous sentence is the first and last I will ever write containing that appalling word, unless it is to further express my distaste.

  • The ever-perspicacious Gwynneth Llewelyn provides us with another excellent piece, on the different divisions within Second Life. Immersionist or augmentationist? Both fine words to be sure, much better than, you know, the one above.

  • The Scripting Wiki now exists once more! (Via Catherine Omega.)

  • The Feature Voting Tool appears to be being dusted off, perhaps in preparation for more active use. Democratically-minded readers may wish to go there to express their opinions, though it is not clear whether one will be able to cast votes on the matter. (Having Laboratoire Lindèn putting up all of their new ideas for Second Life in the same way as residents, to be voted on, would be an interesting and ground-breaking concept, but I suspect just a tad unlikely to happen.)

I'm flattered and thankful for you nice comments, Ordinal, but to state it clearly, "augmentationist vs. immersionist" is a most excellent concept introduced by Henrik Bennetsen, which he developed while doing research at Linden Lab.
