Blogging and Second Life

  1. 1. Blogging Second Life
  2. 2. First Post (Or: Good lord, what was I thinking) I'd like to examine the Metaverse as an agent of profound change (coupled with my scizophrenic talent for being my own devil's advocate I'd also examine it as an agent of profound spectacle alone) - but prefer the idea of change for the better, the idea that the Metaverse may offer a significant platform for the kinds of deep change we associate with revolutions or (at least) the societal shifts that arrive with revolutionary technology. So: exploration - what is the Metaverse and where does it take us? Search for creativity and its meaning. And the personal adventures in a new reality. Not too much to cover off in one blog.
  3. 3. Second Life as a Story Box We hold fast to a social identity that we believe lends us a name and a face, but equally fast we move from one definition of a society to another, alternating again and again that presumed identity. Like characters in a story that keeps changing, we find ourselves playing roles that others appear to have invented for us, in plots whose roots and consequences escape us. .Even when declaring allegiance to one place, we seem to be always moving away from it, toward a nostalgic image of what we believe that place once was or might one day be….and yet, partly because of our nomad nature and partly due to fluctuations of history, our geography is less grounded in a physical than in a phantom landscape. Home is always an imaginary place.
  4. 4. Tips for Bloggers Tell your story in the first sentence or two. Hook your readers. Tell them what you’re going to tell them and then go ahead and tell them. Examples: “You hit the west coast and all of a sudden you’re surrounded by Starbucks. “ “I’d never heard of ARC Nazis before. I guess I’m not fashionable enough.”
  5. 5. Tips for Bloggers Readers are surfers. They want information in bite- sized chunks. Keep it concise. Examples: “Can Second Life Become a Great Brand” - 2,673 words “Story Box” - 2,410 words Totals - 1,000 posts, roughly 1,000 word average, equals 1,000,000 words War and Peace - um, 560,000 (in translation)
  6. 6. Tips for Bloggers Topics that guarantee traffic (summer 2009 edition) • Rezzable • Open spaces (still!) • Real/virtual identity • Michael Jackson (hide it in an alt tag or something) • Philip Linden’s hair (timeless) • Creativity
