A few weeks ago I gave Second Life a try to see what all the hoopla was about. It was an interesting experiment, but I walked away unimpressed. Probably because one time I got stuck in the water (shrunk my clothes and changed genders on me), and another because I couldn’t quite get the "flying" down (or is it up?)
On Thursday, September 14 (tomorrow), I’m going to give it a second effort. Kami Huyse has set up a Second Thursday at Second Life event for a PR discussion and I’ll be there. The event details from Kami’s site:
What: Second Life Second Thursday Worldwide
Where: Comms Café in Second Life
You can find the café by logging on to the Second Life client, hitting the search button, entering “Comms Café” and then teleporting there.
When: Thursday September 14, 2006 (Friday in Australia and India)
Time: 3 p.m. Central Time U.S., and 20:00 GMT (figure out what time we meet in your timezone)
My take on Second Life is simple. I’m not a fan. But it’s not about me. There are many who are big fans. I should at least try to view things from other perspectives, no? This will be a great opportunity to do so. And if I start drowning, maybe I’ll have some help this time.
There weren’t too many Italian last names to choose from, so look for Den Frye – that will be me. If you see me, just holler "Hey Den Frye" (no relation to the coach). Hope to see you there.
