More Snowcrash in the Metaverse.

Yes, I am reading “Snowcrash” again and it appeared to me that it is not a luxury: I can recall almost nothing of the book. It is great to see that the Black Sun community is preparing a Snowcrash RPG and some of the members are writing objects, like the “Safe” I bought earlier this week for L$ 150


and the animated combat Katana (both used by Hiro Protgonist in his combat with businessman in The Black Sun Club) by Abramelin Wolfe for L$ 850! This was the biggest investment I ever made in 2L, my home was only L$500 and my plot of land L$ 512! Why bother? Here you see me practising with my katana

I never thought I would be interested to play combat games.

Still visiting Uvvy Island now and then, but I almost never see there anybody. This week however I met Manoj Undercity (RL name V.R.Manoj), who is a member of the board of the WTA-SL. He designed the new website for the transhumanist movement.

I talked to him briefly, and he showed me the room where the board meets once a week.

  • 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.
