Intro to Second Life 
  elektrix
 
09:54pm 07/01/2006
  I created an introduction course to Second Life for Simulatrix members and to anybody else interested.

Below is an idea of the content I'll introduce you to in Second Life:

- appearance: customizing your avatar
- inventory: I'll drop you a batch of inventory items
- gestures
- moving around: flying, walking
- transportation
- teleportation to: Yadni's Junkyear (Newbie's Paradise)
- "Create Landmark Here"
- teleportation: to Ivory Tower Library of Primitives
- editing and moving objects
- scripts
- teleportation: Brainiac, Games1 (Rancho Grande de la Amigos)
- playing and interacting in Second Life
- teleportation: Better World Island
- building, buying land
- economy, business, developing projects
- more place to teleport you to, depending on your requests

Peace,

Elektrix

  Do you know any attempt at digitally recreating someone from A to Z - not only physically, with personality and memory -, whether he/she is still alive or deceased?

Everything you know about this subject will help me. Thank you!

  Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
set down the philosophical framework for planetary,
Net-based consciousness 50 years ago.

Teilhard saw the Net coming more than half a century before it arrived. He believed this vast thinking membrane would ultimately coalesce into "the living unity of a single tissue" containing our collective thoughts and experiences. In his magnum opus, The Phenomenon of Man, Teilhard wrote, "Is this not like some great body which is being born - with its limbs, its nervous system, its perceptive organs, its memory - the body in fact of that great living Thing which had to come to fulfill the ambitions aroused in the reflective being by the newly acquired consciousness?"

My project "The soul of a Robot".

A ROBOT LOOKING FOR TRUE LOVE. IS IT RIDICULOUS?

In Guesthouse ON TOP OF THE WORLD I have introduced my study project "LOOKING FOR POTS PERFECT FRIEND". I'm setting up a database of human beings to help POT to spot her perfect friend.

Everyone who is interested to make a chance becoming POTS favourite can take part in the project. Your data will be linked with a number and of course the link is secret.
I'm setting up some first ideas about selection criteria for Pot's candidates. I would appreciate if you help me to ask the right questions. I'll be grateful to you. Perhaps you are interested to take part in my project later on.
You want to know more about the project: see my weblog. I'll have to work hard to make the project work. I hope you're interested.

Sae.

  TERRA NOVA
A blog dedicated to virtual worlds/Un blog au sujet des mondes virtuels:
http://terranova.blogs.com/

"Terra Nova is a collaborative weblog experiment. It is about an emerging social phenomenon called "virtual worlds" -- computer-generated, persistent, immersive, and representational social platforms. Currently, the most popular virtual worlds are massively multiplayer online roleplaying games (MMORPGs), such as Everquest and Star Wars Galaxies. However, there are many other old and new varieties of virtual worlds.

Posts at Terra Nova will offer news and opinions regarding the social, economic, legal, psychological, and political aspects of these worlds. We will feature scholarship, insights, and data relevant to the study of virtual worlds."

TORONTO (AP) _ When you first meet Steve Mann, it seems as if you've interrupted him appraising diamonds or doing some sort of specialized welding. Because the first thing you notice is the plastic frame that comes around his right ear and holds a lens over his right eye.

  Conceiving Ada is one of my favorite movies. It's about a computer graphic/animation and programmer, a woman, who has the project of recreate virtually the life and personality of Ada Lovelace, the conceiver of the first computer.
Here is a website about the movie: http://www.lynnhershman.com/ada/html/film.html
This is an article about women inventors, a history universally unknown:
