Can you sit in his lap and talk about how lonely and depressing the world is?


I'm both surprised and not surprised. Those of us that haven't had our heads stuck in the sand have been expecting the slow advance of chatbots to the point where you can't tell a difference in human or bot. But to see it implemented in SL is a bit of a surprise to me. The next step in their evolution will be to follow you from app to app. Or possibly from OS to OS. Anticipate literally seeing Cortana greet you in avatar form on your Android phone, give you the day's itenerary on your iPad, then assume where Clippy failed in helping you with your docs in Office on your PC. And after your day is over, she becomes your dinner date in your VR headset by digital candlelight. Good times. Gotta love mixed reality.


Sex, sex, sex. It drives people and VR. A human condition.

Sex has always driven technology. If it weren't for the backend credit card payment technology for porn sites, the commercial Web may have been much slower evolution

Are they really bots or "real" avatars pretending to be bots? I wasn't sure after testing: https://apmel.blogspot.se/2017/05/apmelina-tests-renting-npc-with-ai-in-sl.html
