Second Life – first impressions part four

in second life

WSecond Lifeell, no one can say I haven’t been giving it a fair go…

I eventually found Shelville’s FIR booth on Podcaster’s Island on Second Life.

This is what their booth looks like — that’s me on the left. On a wooden crate. Probably getting a splinter in my derriere.

Here’s me sitting on the other side of their booth.

Stark, isn’t it?

By way of contrast, here’s the CommsCafe booth, just two doors to the left…

Fancy dropping by for a chat? (126, 62, 25)

Coming soon: a coffee machine and comfy couch on which to relax and read something from our extensive bookshelf, plus no doubt when he gets back from holiday CC Chapman himself will pop by for an interview…

UPDATE: I have created a SLurl — just type in LeeHopkins.name into your favourite browser and be magically transported to the gateway to a whole new world.

    A little friendly podcasting booth competition going on? And I also see that your Avatar is now a man… a vast improvement :-)

    Lee, love the new digs. I fancy a chat. Should be fun!
    Then you can teach ME a thing or two about building in Second Life. Seems like you’re getting the hang of it.

    Swing on by http://www.secondlifeoffice.com the next time you are around. That redirects to a SLurl that will take you to the front door of my office.

    Make yourself at home and invite friends over.

    Ah, ladies and gentlemen! Thanks for your thoughts and comment!!

    The challenge with a ‘second’ life is, as Donna P and others have found, finding the time for a ‘first’ life.

    Of course, being in a time zone completely the opposite of the rest of the world doth not make for an easy hook-up. But it was lovely to see that Shel was checking out the Cafe booth and engaging in chat. And REALLY curious to see that the Pickle Radio dude was there, too. He must have a very large monthly outgoing, to have all that land and not many tenants…

    Aaahhh… that’s because when I wrote those posts I hadn’t created a ‘Second Life’ category. Click on this link to get them all: http://leehopkins.net/category/second-life/

    Ah thanks Lee, it certainly bumped up your second life posts :-)
    On a techno-boring level your right hand column is wrapping to the bottom left (after the actual content) in Firefox (PC).
