Awesome! Just don't give any video blogger interviews with any pilsner in your system... For the record I was never homeless. :-P


I loved the spread. I thought it was a well-balanced fly-over of the virtual experience, not just the most "sexy" subjects.


Gotta remember to pick up Wired... enjoy the Zywiec, it's a great beer. Must remember that there's wireless Internet in the Rynek Glowny next time I'm in Krakow...

Hamlet Au

I'm on vodka now. I've been trying to run SL from here, so I could get a great stunt photo, but the update download is pwning me.

C.C. Chapman

It's a very nicely done piece for sure and gave a good overview of the diversity in SL.

Jesse Malthus

I got my copy last week. I found it to be increadibly neat, and since I was on the Mainland, I figured out how to pinpoint my location on the included map.

Haney Armstrong

I just read the Wired piece and thought it was great. I was struck buy the timeline and wondered how anyone could write that without having lived through it.

Akela Talamasca

One thing I forgot to say in my coverage of the issue: "It's what the Danes call 'kuality'."


Yay NCI!

Carl Metro pointed me to the blurb we got up in there :D



I haven't seen the paper edition but I'm eagerly watching the website for when it drops -- Oct. 17 here we come! :D

Sounds intriguing, and I bet a lot more pleasurable than any guide to Molvania. ;)
