After a prolonged coma, and years of rehabilitation, I came to Second Life, to look into a possible "window to the world". I was disabled, and had a poor self image, after a lifetime career in Martial Arts and Dog Training. I learned something in Second Life, that I will share. I now can boast a successful and confident real life.
I help People in SL to learn a lesson about what success is, with Virtual Dogs. I own the most popular dog park in the virtual world. At Dogland Park in Rhoda I… Continue

wow.....almost a year later since my registration as a AVW member and this is my first blog?! Goodness. Well. I shall rectify this with a short update:
I have 15 weeks to go before baby#3 makes his entrance into this world. This gives me that much time to finish my dissertation. Thank goodness, my data has been collected already. Too bad that I am a month late on my chapter 4 delivery though. A isses.exe error busted my laptop upon my return from AERA in San Diego. After wasting much time… Continue

Today is my first day here...and I feel like perhaps this is finally my own space.
Around 4 p.m. (after teaching), I revisited Virginia Woof’s A Room of One’s Own… Woolf says,“…it is particularly difficult for a modern to transmit reality. Modern women are frustrated and angry, their experience is limited; modern men are obsessed with the letter “I”; their writing is full of self-conscious indecency, self-conscious virility. It is essentially sterile” (xii).

I have deleted second Life from my Mac. I had no problem with Second Life itself, unfortunately some of the avatars where clearly aimed at sexual attraction with enlarged physical features.
The problem for me was that my two youngest 8 and 10 had access to my account and I was a little uncomfortable with some of the images they were seeing while I was looking over their shoulder.
As I say no criticism of Second Life itself just some of the users.

Please also pass this to any friends or colleagues you know... the more responses the better... and it is very short!
Thank you in advance and best wishes

As a progressive businessperson, you probably have heard the phrase “Web 2.0.” You can’t escape it. By now you’ve heard of and maybe used LinkedIn, a social networking site for businesspeople on which many promotional products professionals are connecting; Digg, where users can tag news stories and vote on them; and MySpace and Facebook, social networking sites originally used by teens and young adults but now popular with companies and adults.
You may be aware that Web 2.0… Continue

With a rapid advancement of technologies and opportunities like web 2.0 there has been a dramatic change in web design. Earlier websites that where animated and flashy were considered to more fancy and trendy. But, if you look at the present scenario, today the accessibility and usability of a website has become more important.
Driven by web 2.0 technologies, the table design of the past has been… Continue

I have evolved to building "environments" in Second Life rather than just buildings or objects. In these efforts Im trying to create a feeling or a mood from the entire set of objects, scripts, and sounds. The Art Deco Lounge of the Hotel Imposant Epave is my most successful effort. Now i have created a video of my Ancient Celtic Village.

Have any comments on your own experiences or involvement in either platform that you'd like to share with Birds of a Feather session attendees at NECC09 in Washington, D.C.? Birds sessions are typically attended by hundreds of folks interested in the topic, some of whom don't know a blamed thing about it.
I've set up two Wallwisher walls, one for each topic, that I hope will between now and July 1 become populated enough with valuable reflections and resources to be helpful… Continue
