The BBC Covers Emeraldgate
The BBC's "Outriders" show has a long segment on Emeraldgate this week, featuring my friend the lovely and talented Jamillah Knowles interviewing me about Second Life third party viewers, how Emerald became so popular, and the limitations of trust in anonymous avatars using open source. Jamillah and I did the interview late last week, before Linden Lab officially blocked Emerald, but I like to think it's a good overview. Wisely and appropriately, no anonymous avatar names are mentioned. Somewhat disappointingly, my crack about Linus Torvalds' penchant for wearing socks and sandals (dude WTF) didn't make the final cut.
