Holiday Wishes to You Avatars
Location: Egg-Nogged Torpor
I really enjoyed the holiday party at VWER yesterday; not only did I get to wear a wonderful white-tie-and-spats outfit Viv Trafalgar makes, but I got to pelt folks with snowballs, ice skate with my colleague Anetha, and dance to the fine blues-rock of Kelvinblue Oh.
To my friends in Second Life and other virtual worlds, I wish you the happiest of holidays.
The new year brings new joys and challenges, and Linden Lab will begin it with Rod Humble, a veteran of Electronic Arts. I have a lot of warm-fuzzies for EA, since their subsidiary Maxis released Sim City and Sim City 2000. The latter was the first game I ever used in a classroom. If Rod could not only make the physics work, but have a Godzilla from SC 2000 romp through the mainland once in a while, I'd be a happier boy in SL.
My resolution to be not be so snarky about the Lab continues. I will resume my road-trips, monthly if possible, and after last night's party, I should get out more to hear live music and support the talent to be found in-world.
See you all in 2011.
