To those SL residents closely watching the RL news: Virtual Ben Laden is now showing a 3D rendering of his latest video in Second Life! Location: http://slurl.com/secondlife/CARICAVATARS/150/32/21

Virtual Ben Laden would like to take this opportunity to send a poignant message to the American people: "Being constantly chased around, for the past six years I have had to dye by beard with goat sheet. It makes my skin really itchy... Could anybody send me some professional dye, just like the one Rudy Giuliani uses on the remainder of his hair? Thanks in advance!" -- Virtual Ben Laden


For those who are looking to commemorate the World Trade Center attack on 9/11, there is a beautiful memorial here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/World%20Trade%20Center/175/85/26

3pointD and my blog rikomatic.com have some pics and commentary about it.

Doonesbury had a strip this Sunday in which a character raises money in SL then donates the money to DonorsChoose.org. It's probably one of the most positive press SL has gotten.

My unicorn story went wild in the media. :(

I knew Boing Boing would pick it up. If the unicorn had a goatse in it too, I bet Xeni would still have it on the front page.


Dude, Doonesbury! That's awesome!
