When you're through reading, you can give it a try...
Linden Lab has a long history of public relations, with expert implementation of spin, hype and reality-bending to accomplish purposes and obfuscate data. Recently the company asked for folks to apply as user-based media contacts, folks who can join them in their positive-presentation of the board.
Using their example of spin and "read between the lines" publication, I thought I… Continue

COPYRIGHTS, FEDERAL LAW and COMMON SENSEA brief, simple-language examination of copyright concepts as they pertain to Second life.
With the introduction of the new SL TOS (April 30, 2010), there is a lot of discussion about what is / isn't allowed, what is and isn't legal, and what rights people do or don't have. We've also seen some degree of panic that is common when people don't know enough about… Continue

I have to say, there have been some pretty astounding movies released recently.
It seemed that for a long time, movies had just gone downhill. Everything was eye candy and flash and zero story. Some movies were just plain awful. But in the last few years we've seen some good stuff. Thought I'd mention a few just for fun.HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
This is the surprising win this year. Every once in a while a movie comes out that just… Continue

Update on Elf Clan Social Network on NING.
As most of you are aware, NING, the host of this blogsite, has announced cessation of their free service and will be charging a whopping $120 a year as of mid July. This is of course, untenable for non-profit groups and individuals... especially since other sites are offering the same service free of charge.
At this time we are looking for another blogsite to host the Elf Clan
Social Network.… Continue

I didn't hear about this event until after it was over, but it sounds like something we should plan to get in on next year. We have some wonderful designers who could create a great build and prizes and show off Elf Clan to fishers from around the grid. See Selah's description
over on the Raglan Forums for more details.

THERE ARE ALWAYS CONSEQUENCES
Most people who have been around a few decades realize a very important fact of life: There are always consequences for decisions and actions.
Note I don't say "sometimes". I don't say "maybe".
Now, some people may claim that's not the case, and there's no sense in arguing the point with them. They are welcome to do what they want, and of course, face the consequences of not believing there are… Continue

" [The new TOS] is far more abusive, infringes far more on user legal rights, and
even imposes into areas of Federal Copyright law... something I feel pretty sure Linden Lab is going to have brought to their attention the hard way."

Just a few weeks after the above prediction, Linden Lab has been served with a FEDERAL class-action… Continue

Has anyone ever stopped to view things from Linden Lab's perspective?
I know coming from me, that may be a rather surprising question. But let's take a "give the guy a break" position, set paranoia and conspiracy theories aside, and take a look at several Second Life issues from a different direction.
Let me assure you I am by no means turning pro-Linden Lab. This article consists of sheer speculation, "fly on the wall" type stuff.… Continue

Poll website: VIEWER 2 POLL
Amanda Linden ran a poll on Viewer 2. As Pan comments, the poll was obviously slanted to be in favor of Viewer 2. While I'm sure Linden Lab was hoping to be vindicated in release of that viewer, here are the results:
On a separate, larger poll on a different page, here were the results:… Continue

NING CEO POURS SAND IN THE GEARS
NING.COM is the host of our Elf Clan Social Network.
It seems Second Life
is not the only company plagued by new CEO problems. NING has fired the majority of their employees and has decided to now start charging all users for the Ning service (what... the numerous advertisements all over our blogsite wasn't sufficient to pay for the service?)
Ning has rocked up to
