Thank you for this lovely memory. When I heard about this from a neighbor, my first avatar (2004-2008) had my real-life company offices in a different corporate themed region. I teleported over to this protest for a few minutes and looked around. I would never have remembered without this article. Thanks!

I sat in on one of those public meetings they had. Funny thing is I was dressed in a black suit, white shirt, black tie. It used to be mandatory IBM dress code in RL. All the IBM employees were in shorts and such.

Warm memories of what SL once was... And despite Grey Goo and the Flying Penii being a hassle, it was all hilarious and made each time you logged into SL an adventure. You just never knew what to expect. Smiles...

Warms up my buzzard vocal cords...

Those Were the Days My Friend - Songwriter: Gene Raskin

… Once upon a time there was a tavern
Where we used to raise a glass or two
Remember how we laughed away the hours
Think of all the great things we would do?

… Those were the days, my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way
La-la-la-da-da-da
La-la-la-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, la-da-da-da-da

… Then the busy years went rushing by us
We lost our starry notions on the way
If by chance I'd see you in the tavern
We'd smile at one another and we'd say

… Those were the days, my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days
La-la-la-da-da-da
La-la-la-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da

… Just tonight I stood before the tavern
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
In the glass I saw a strange reflection
Was that lonely woman really me?

… Those were the days, my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days
La-la-la-da-da-da
La-la-la-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da
La-la-la-da-da-da
La-la-la-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da

… Through the door, there came familiar laughter
I saw your face and heard you call my name
Oh, my friend, we're older but no wiser
For in our hearts, the dreams are still the same

… Those were the days, my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days
La-la-la-da-da-da
La-la-la-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da
La-la-la-da-da-da
La-la-la-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da

… La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
