Thanks for the follow up, Hamlet. I wish I could claim a professorship - but Im actually an educational technologist and designer. ;)

This week has been a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows as we deal with the pointy legal end of the lab, but I'm looking forward to (and very SLOPEN to.. hehe) continuing with new and old projects in both Second Life, ReactionGrid and beyond in the coming months.

Also I must say a huge thanks to jokaydia community members and other educators from the SLeducation community who have rallied around and shared their energy and willingness to explore with me. Thanks everyone!!!

Hamlet, you might want to add "SLapped" (as in "by LL") to your jargon list. A few of us on the SLED list have been tossing it around!

jokay got one very unfair SLap because LL had eagerly promoted the same site they later cited as infringing on their trademarks.

Perhaps the company's SLegal Eagles meant to warn her earlier, but they couldn't type the warning with two Smithfield Hams coming from the sleeves of their pinstripe lawyer-suits.

Metacam Oh

Reaction grid has it good, all they have to do is sit back and watch while Linden insults everyone of its paying customers or SLaps them in the face.

Does the leadership of Linden lab have any clue at all about the exodus under way or are they not going to believe it until the Chinese Lady sings and pulls the plug on that giant estate? I mean LL has to deal with it's copyrights and trademarks and all but isn't sluniverse infringing? Or does LL allow friends and lovers to infringe and not others?

Metacam Oh

I wonder if SL.com is infringing....

I wonder if anyone has the initials SL has to change their RL name

If Linden Lab doesn't get their act together, I'm SLeaving.

I know a few people who claim to have already SLeft and others are SLooking at others.

I guess I'm SLopen to your term, Hamlet!

LOL :)
