This month’s speaker… is me!
Second Life expert (Their words not mine!), AxisCommunity citizen
and all round star (I do try to shine and be helpful guiding influence!) doing a short talk and tour of Second Life.

for The Axis Centre at the end of June.)
The Thursday short talk will look at the following.
What exactly is Second Life?
Perplexed by what it is? Baffled by all the hype? Skeptical whether
anybody will actually find the time to take part? Intrigued by the
possibility of having your own alter ego living another life? Second
Life is almost certain to become way more than a virtual playground for
geeks, wierdos, tech heads and the bizarre. It’s already about
business, commerce and entertainment, soon its going to be about
everyday life from social relationships, to leisure and work.
At this months axis community you will get to ask all the questions you
were afraid to ask about Second Life. What if you behave exactly how
you wanted with no consequences? What if no one was going to discover
your impropriety? Would it change you? It’s possible already to look at
virtual art, visit a jazz bar if you are Hard Metal fan, sit on a
mountain top watching digital sunsets if you are a man, fight to the
death as a warrior, be an Elven Priestess, walk the world as a member
of the opposite sex, get on down at a 80’s club. Hear Katie’s story
from naive and constantly blushing princess to aspirations of radiant
business Queen stopping by wide eyed and curious, speechless and
shocked to head shaking surreal. A whirlwind tour of Second Life and
the mad world that lies in between real life and total immersion. Its
about drawing the line between Fantasy and Reality.
along and take a short and entertaining glimpse into this expanding
world that may hold all sorts of interesting possibilities for you
personally and professionally. (If you are in-world come over to Pilot Theatre's home hub you may catch the end of the tour at about 8.45pm)
I'm looking forwards to doing it. Nervous, but excited. I am hoping to stream live on to Ustream.tv (Serch for pcmcreative in action if you what to log in to the show) network stability pending as Second Life may fill the pipe!
