Exploring the Virtual World of Second Life through the eyes of an obsessive compulsive heavily armed gunslinging girl, jazz club fan, and all around party avatar with attention deficit disorder. This blog is a photojournal of my SL metaverse travels, adventures, and misadventures. Currently exploring the "Steampunk" sims

SLQ (slquery.com) is a complete search and data integration platform connecting the virtual and real worlds. SLQ infoBOX: the free notecard/prim driven catalog server. SLQ infoHUD: this powerful search engine includes a spell check, encyclopedia, and a wealth of external sources like blogs, amazon.com, wikipedia, and news feeds that are text driven, URL linked, and have pop-up display images. SLQ infoStation: just like the infoHUD, but unplugged for public use. Plus, it has a powerful SL to RL web-based IM system. Chat with anyone in SL even when you cannot log in. MySLQ: all your listings are automatically generated into a mini web page for display in your SL web profile tab. SLQ is fully integrated with SL Exchange (SLX) for listing products and searches.

Musings on Second Life - and how we'd all like it to be. Perhaps not for the faint hearted

Josh Levy

A Better World in Second Life?

A machinima documentary about activism in Second Life. I spend time with a handful of progressive activists doing work in SL to learn how it is being used as an activist platform, and whether or not activism in virtual worlds is effective.

LA 2nd Life is maintained by Linux Australia members with the goal of making it easy for Linux an FOSS users to enjoy Second Life, and to introduce to Residents in SL the many benefits of Linux, Free and Open Source Software.

In time we hope it might evolve into one of the bridges between the Linux/FOSS community and the SL community, and lead to a less buggy, faster, full featured, better scaling and redundant Metverse.

M is for Myg

M is for Myg - http://mygdala.com is the SL misadventures of one girl searching for her identitiy (along with a bunch of friends). And a variety of SL tips and tricks. Imagine an interactive graphic novel blog and you're somewhere in the ballpark.

Theory Shaw

Will the burgeoning 3D metaverse really provide a platform for collective intelligence in design and in particular, architecture? We assume it will. This blog, however, is dedicated to exploring and fleshing out the specific measures, protocol, and tools necessary, within the metaverse and in particular Second Life, to make this ‘Wikitecture’ concept a reality.

Veyron Supercharge

I'm an Avatar, of course, from Second Life. I explore, shop, party, chat, flirt, tease, and generally get into trouble in Second Life. Pretty much cover it all, from sex, clothing, fashion, to philosophy and more sublime topics. Oh and a few techie tips now and then.

A Virtual Village Voice is my blog. I blog about the 'political' side of SL with occasional forays into cars or sims that I like or dislike (let's be honest... writing about things you dislike is funnier!)
Latest entries include a visit to Phat Cat and musings about age verification.

A Virtual Village Voice


The Fountain

Religion in Second Life, with a Muslim focus. Read how legendary Taras Balderdash, founder of the Avatarians who features in the SL Official Guide, has stirred up a hornets nest following his comments about Islam, provoking SupportforHealing's Zafu Diamond to announce his resignation from the Avatarian group.

Mindtracks is used to track my interests in Web design, network literacy, and digital culture. I am interested in how the web may be used by visual artists. As of May 2007 I started to poke around Second Life. I also teach in a Computer arts studio at university.

For anyone who is interested in making things, or how we represent ourselves, Second Life is a fascinating and complex experience, so now I am exploring Second Life too and documenting my reactions along the way. So far I have decided that with my combination of interests Second Life has the potential to be a serious addiction.


My new blog is at http://jennyfurperegrine.wordpress/com and is titled the Virtual Jennyfur. Its about whatever I feel like writing about pertaining to Second Life and my personal life.

The Economics of Virtual Worlds

As the name says, this is a blog on the economic dimensions of virtual worlds (not just Second Life), maintained by Dan Miller, an economist at the Joint Economic Committee of the U.S. Congress.

Nothing fancy, just the occasional news story that has implications for government policy or explores economic aspects of virtual worlds.

The emerging field of immersive 3D environments on the internet has proven compelling for users and attractive to business. Find here our thoughts and opinions on this new environment and how, or if, return on investment can be found for companies in these virtual worlds.



Under the motto "Evolving Metaverse" i write this blog about my own and Accident Designs experiences in Second Life. I try to look at overall aspects from a new perspective and i provide technical information on the projects i am currently working on. Right now for instance im writing a post about how my first sclulptie's came to life through the use of blender.

Topher Zwiers

Through this blog, I'll be discussing:
→ general commentary on Second Life news relevant to educators
→ ideas for applying Second Life technology to learning environments
→ resources for facilitating Real Life education via Second Life.

Since I'll be writing this blog as I engage SL for the first time, personally, some of the early posts may be retreads of topics and issues others have already discussed or resources with which many experienced SL educators are already familiar. For experienced Second Life educators, I will be addressing current issues and events that may be useful, and hopefully, some of the ideas I have for applying SL to educational environments will be new, innovative and useful. For educators new to Second Life, the blog will be a chronological journal of my SL learning curve and experience; hopefully, documenting my experience may expedite your SL learning and exploration process.

PalUP Ling

Talwyn Mills

As a relatively new Citizen in Second Life I've been astounded by the number of different role playing or activity sims available. The one problem I have noted is actually finding ones that are similar to my interests.

So I'm trying to put together a directory for these sims. Called the Adventure and Role Playing Sims Directory (ARPS Directory for short), it will be made available at various locations throughout Second Life to help new and old Citizens alike find new and interesting ways to spend their time.

For more information please see the official blog. A more detailed introduction is available here.

Digital Image is a fashion forward blog filled with photos, musings, happenings in SL!

voyeurism did not start off as a blog about Second Life, but now that i have taken up residency and beginning to explore and ponder in earnest about the implications Second Life has on evolving the design of learning environments and pedagogical strategies, i have been blogging and podcasting extensively my early thoughts on these and related issues in spatial cognition and adolescent discourse.

Great Ways to Annoy People in the Computer Lab

Assign a musical note to every key (ie. the Delete key is A Flat, the B key is F sharp, etc.). Whenever you hit a key, hum its note loudly. Write an entire paper this way.

Before anyone else is in the lab, connect each computer to a different monitor than the one it's set up with.

Bring a chainsaw, but don't use it. If anyone asks why you have it, say "Just in case..." mysteriously.
