IEET conference in Second Life

Friday june, 30 a second virtual conference was held on Uvvy Island. This was also a second opportunity to test the Vivox-software. The guys from Vivox had learned from the first time; things went a lot smoothier and when I entered the conference room in the Space Habitat it was rather easy to be added […]

Virtual Transvision at Uvvy Island

Long time, no post

My RL and my SL consume too much time, so there isn’t very much left to write in this journal. I’ll give you an update about last week. Of course I visited Dublin. Again, I saw nobody there; it must be a great place but there are no visitors when I am there (are they […]

Tour on Uvvy Island

  • 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.
