Kent's conversations in both Sansar and High Fidelity were fascinating. He made some great points about avatar bias in the fireside chat and in Sansar he came and talked to us after the event. Kent has some great insights.

What's he mean by avatar bias?

Ciaran Laval

Judging people based on their avatar, almost like a class prejudice, it was really interesting in High Fidelity because someone asked a question and Philip Rosedale said that they needed to get that person a better avatar.

Kent mentioned that later when he raised the issue and he also mentioned that Draxtor had commented on his avatar in Sansar.
