Bald-Headed Freak to Talk about Second Life & Edu with Paisley Beebe


Location: Ready for my close up, Mr. DeMille

Just a quick note that on Sunday I'll be on "Tonight Live with Paisley Beebe," talking about the impact of the price increase on educators. Paisley did well to invite me this week and not last. I'll even wear a polite shirt!

Thanks to Bliss (pictured) teaching me how not to act the fool on live TV. I did not sit on Paisley's cat during my voice-check, so she slept peacefully as I droned on and on and on.

I'd have done a lot of yelling a week ago. Now, I can at least try to be urbane about the difficulties my colleagues face.

The potential exodus from SL has caught the eye of the mainstream, with Jeff Young interviewing AJ Brooks of VWER for the Chronicle of Higher Education. Nice work, AJ.

I'll try not to be too much of the "bad cop" to AJ's "good cop" while on Paisley's show. Damn.

You're a disgrace -- and I'm totally disgusted with your shtick.

You Leninists have grabbed and grabbed and grabbed, and never given back.

Good riddance.

Uh, yeah.

Well, we'll be gone from SL soon enough. Lag and all, OpenSim has this great advantage: No Prokofy Neva.
