Friday Open Forum: Post Your Virtual Links Here

Really anything related to Sansar, High Fidelity, SL, Bitcoin, OpenSim, VR, and so on -- and yes, self-promotion is welcome. I may just help you boost that promotion too!

SL Brand Owners: Tell Me If You're Setting Up in Sansar

We know that top SL game brand Madpea is setting up in High Fidelity, we know that top SL fashion brand Blueberry is too. But unless I missed it (and that's quite possible), not a single SL brand has yet announced plans to set up shop in Linden Lab's upcoming Sansar. (Even though a majority polled say they planned to do so.)

So this is a call: If you own a well-known SL brand and you're planning to launch in Sansar soon, please let me know. Post in Comments below, hit me up in any of these social/SL channels listed here. I'd love to know what you're planning.

New World Notes' Reality Recovery Open Forum

North Shore Hawaii

New World Notes is currently recovering from two weeks of the reality above, so taking a brief hiatus today from blogging about all things virtual. Meantime, the mic is open to NWN readers -- what about VR and related topics should NWN feature once we're back in business?

Friday Open Forum: What Link Should We Look at Today?

Any link, long as it's got a virtual twist. And if it's a particularly lovely link, I likely may link to it in a follow-up post!

What Are You Virtually Doing This Long Weekend?

NWN Open Forum for the long weekend (at least here in the US, for the July 4th holiday): Post events, opinions, links, pretty much whatever as long as it's got a virtual spin.

UK users, the floor is yours -- how will last night's Brexit influence your usage of Second Life? British SLers make up a large percentage of the active userbase, and most economists believe the Brexit will have a heavy negative impact on the British economy, so the overall influence is likely to be sharp and noticeable.

Your own take, UK readers? And come to think of it, as the Brexit will probably impact every user in every country, this open forum is open to all.

Friday Open Form: Links, News, Opinions on the Virtual

What's the most interesting thing NWN readers (which include me) should know about today?

Where Should Polygon's "Monster Factory" Next Visit in SL?

Justin McElroy, co-host of Polygon's popular "Monster Factory" smartass tour of Second Life, reached out to me on Twitter in search of new locations. Their videos are good-natured, Obrien-eseque jabes through the metaverse, but it's clear that they're sort of randomly teleporting into noob areas or randomly browsed areas that don't show SL at its most interesting -- or wackiest!

So where should they go? Post SLurls at them on Twitter, or in Comments below. Key recommended components:

  • Lots of regular visitors
  • Seriously cool visually 
  • Gamer/sandbox creator friendly

Post in Comments are Tweet via the link above!
