3rd day in 2L

Today I only spent a few minutes in 2L; too much work IRL. But: I found out how to add some gestures (laughing, shrugging, pointing and strectching; saying “yes”, “no”, and “wow!”) to my avater and I drove a bit on my bike, that was obviously given to me; TANSTAAFL rebuked. I think.

It’s a beautiful world, but I’m still hesitating to jump into the hassle of the mainland – a matter of cold feet; just hanging around in the sandbox to learn how this all works. 🙂

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
