Second Life advertising hits new low

Jo Yardley's Second Life

I’ve written before about how I think that the bad reputation SL has is a problem and about how I think that LL should work on improving it.

As far as I am concerned it is a big deal that so many outsiders think that SL is either dead or that it is a cesspit of filthy perverts and shallow people who just want to look like barbie.

Don’t get me wrong, SL IS both those things, but it is so much more.

I think that LL and the SL users need to work on getting SL a better reputation.

Not only do we have to make people realise that SL offers so many different kinds of entertainment, art, social interaction, etc, but also that it has some pretty amazing graphics that really are not as bad as those 2007 screenshots you see with every article seem to suggest.

(Un)occupy Turtle Island

Unsettling America

Occupy movement in New Mexico finds new name out of respect for Native Americans:

By Nicolas Mendoza, The American Independent

In response to concerns over the term “Occupy Albuquerque”, the protest movement has renamed itself “(Un)occupy Albuquerque.” The decision was made in a general assembly meeting of protesters at the University of New Mexico campus.

As the New Mexico Independent reported last week, some of the ’99 percenters’ objected to the association of the word ‘Occupy’ with what one Daily Kos contributor called “…five-hundred years of forced occupation of [Native American] lands, resources, cultures, power, and voices by the imperial powers of both Spain and the United States. A big chunk of the 99 percent has been served pretty well by that arrangement. A smaller chunk hasn’t.”
