Burning Life

One of the most boring features of Second Life is that there are too many software updates. So when I log in, there is almost always a message, telling me that I have to download and install the newest version. And then there was the message, earlier this week, that my password was no longer valid, because of security reasons. So I had to get a login-code and change my password. The other day, after updating, Second Life was down. Life isn’t always easy, and neither is Second Life.:-(

But today, after installing another update, I had some time left to explore a bit more than the usual wake up in my home, teleport to Uvvy Island and have a look at my short list of calling cards to see who’s online (no-one). So I took the advice Second Life gave me to visit “Burning Life”, whatever it may be. It appears to be a collection of beautiful buildings in a desert-like environment. And…there is a website with more pics…

  • 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.
