This is one type of story that LL should be citing in their marketing, where someone at least partially cultivated a talent or creative knack in Second Life and has been able to translate it into out-world endeavors. I vaguely recall there being other SL game developers that have been able to market their games off the grid as well. Likewise you have musicians who have polished their talents performing in SL, DJs, virtual artists, real artists who found an outlet there, etc.

Much like I posted in another thread about prim-building being a decent primer for learning 3D modeling, here is a person that considers LSL scripting a good 'ground' for learning programming and has now expanded out to do other things.

It's really a shame that the 'adult' content is often the dominating narrative about SL when there is so much positive stuff to talk about. It's also too bad the technical issues, problems with LL management, etc. continue to be at the forefront of the discussion and largely drown out things like this.

I agree with Nathaniel. Some of the most dedicated Residents we have are people who learned or are learning valuable skills inworld. I'm sure I've put in more hours inworld learning and practicing building and scripting than I would have had the endurance to spend on poseballs.

Congrats to Robbie Dingo!

Nice one Robbie!
Certainly agree that there are many overlaps between creating virtual content and augmented content. I also found both LSL and prim based instrument building useful when transitioning to iOS development and thinking about making music interactive with the RjDj crew
