OK, this comment is going to be a bit repetitive for me, but I just never get tired of saying anything. It would seem that, as it happens IRL, the ones who have a say most of the time in SL are the ones with the money. I think it's really encouraging for many of us (well, not me - I'm plain unproductive in both lives, but there are many teen authors out there) to see that Katharine's work, while never done for thirst of money, is being recognised. Kudos all over the web to Kath! ^^

All the links to Katherine's blog are comming up 404 for me - I don't know if they're just incorrect or if there's suddenly a NWN equivilant of the slashdot effect. (Or she actualy did get dugg/slashdotted).

Try again, she posted an update that her server was down, but it looks to be back.

Katharine is a very very very very very smart individual. I was on the teen grid for two years and I always hanged out with her because she knew what I didn't know. She has created many projects, including tslemporium.com (the most popular teen-only web market.) She also has a lot of free web applications dealing with SL from an ajax online checker to a site dealing with simulator stats all across the teen grid. Check katharineberry.co.uk for those links.

Congrats to Kath! :D I wonder if LL would do remote work with teenagers.. she might be the first teen linden if it ever happens. Hehe.

I understand that you don't have access to TSL? Really, we should push LL to get them to allow you in. You are one of the few links that we have to that grid and you dig up some very good stories.

Nobody Fugazi

Good hack. ;-)

Congratulations on an amazing piece of work; this would seem to have lots of potential!


I'm blown away at Katherines work and that she's so young and achieving so much already :). congrats.

beginning of something very big

So it looks like, according to her blog, that Katharine is leaving SL for the most part. It seems mostly to do with the Lindens horrid upkeep of the teen grid. I have never personally been on the teen grid but always assumed it would be no better or no worse than the main grid. I for one am sad to see this incredible young person end up leaving the community. The things she was able to achieve in the teen grid and the unfathomable future contibutions to the main were and could be astounding and the blow to the future of SL is incredible.
