Annotated 9 Year Timeline of Social Controversies in SL
SL blogger Botgirl Questi recently created this annotated, interactive timeline of controversies in Second Life, going back to 2003, and it's pretty damn cool:
Several, such as the Iraq War-flavored battles in Jessie, were originally covered on NWN. "As I browsed through the last 3 1/2 years of my posts," Questi tells me, "I realized they included what amounted to a history of Second Life controversies." So now she's implementing them into this timeline, and taking tips from other SLers for controversies to add:
"I posted the first draft of the timeline in a blog post and asked readers to suggest additional controversies. About a week later, it's grown to 125+ events, each linked to a blog post or article. There are plenty of items I've missed, so the history will continue to grow in addition to whatever new issues pop up in the future."
