The 2nd QuestioN! Thursday nights @7PM PDT/10East on SL

Pooky Amsterdam (P) & Hydra Shaftoe (H) Give us our Slews, our Weekly Slews!

From the Top of Bevan’s Skybox, to the Mason Digi Lineo, covering the Metaverse 25/8, and bringing you the behind the scenes report the Wall Street Journal might not.

This….is…..The SLEWS
P: Hello Avatars and here now the Slews!

H: Sell OG Blesander!

P: What Hydra?

H: That is good evening in Icelandic, we cover the world and Iceland is 77th in countries who use SL and Pooky isn’t it “covering the world 24/7″?

P: I have a box of mega prims on my front lawn, it gives me an extra hour and day.

H: oh, nevermind

P: This past week, Mr Rosedale goes to Washington, First Hearings in Congress simulcast from Rayburn real & Rayburn Virtureal

H: Con Markay (D-Mass) couldn’t get over his buff physique and spent his opening statements talking about how hot he looked

P: He made one tiny remark about it, in fact I thought he said any simlarites between me and my avatar are purely coincidental

H: Hearings hosted by his Subcommittee on telecommunications and the Internet, it was history in the making and a very great day for SL.

P: We all should indeed be very proud to be a part of this brave not completely new world as we stand on the edge of tomorrow in education, science and more.

H…And this just in, Columbus was WRONG! The world really is flat.

P: In everything from breakthroughs in Autism, Education, technology and reducing our energy consumption through online business, SL stands up and is counted. Send your mother this testimony.

H: Here we can Reduce Costs & increase productivity- vital to the world’s growth- to master this & make things happen that are not possible in real life

P: Like this show

H: we can study Impacts on the environment first hand Fly into the eye of a hurricane. And if you don’t live in Florida, this is something you cant do.

P: Emergency first response is trialed here

H: Is that like letting a fractal loose at a toga party?

P: And a place where the American cancer society has raised tens of millions of dollars

H: that has to be a misread, you mean Lindens

P: No, Hydra I mean dollars.

H: On the downside Congresswoman Harmon of Florida pointed out that Islamic terrorists have been known to use SL to launder dollars, and recruit

P: So if you see a suspicious looking package rezzing, please report it immediately.

H: While phychiatrists have begun to find that Sl might be mildly addicting

P: I don’t know why they say this, I only logged 45 hours this week.

H: The good news is SL is better than drugs, and provides a window into the current reality of communities and even a walk trough the human heart

P: Who told you about my secret crush? Oops wrong word bubble

H: Congress remains committed to safely monitoring the internet while the panel emphasized how important the growth of broadband was in allowing these new worlds to continue to grow.

P:As America pioneered across the country we had land set aside for Universities to grow, into telecommunication it was insured that some channels would be set aside for education

P; We must be allowed to grow online. As Dr. Johnson said, what happens in SL, does not just stay in SL

H: This isn’t Vegas Baby!

P: 70% of users are European, Rosedale pointed out this is because of the pervasiveness of broadband

H: Congressman Stephens of Fla suggested that the possibility is unlimited by anything but our creativity-

P: Is the future of the internet exact replicas of us though?

H: My turn to Howl, well, testimony was given on identity exploration & the ability to empathise here with different cultures.

P: Even different species.

H: - Even more remarkable was the real miracle in the way Republicans & Democrats have agreed on this.

P: Congresswoman Harman made the observation that Congress seemed to operate in a virtual reality as it were, as they are are in & out of town so often they might as well send avatars to vote

H: What next Virtual congress? If we voted inworld to fund the war, there wouldn’t be any Lindens left.

P: If Pro is the opposite of Con then what is the opposite of progress?

H: How to get past the 7th level of WOW- that’s a tough one

P: Overall it was a very very moving tribute to our tiny world and it’s awesome powers- Please view the archive of this.


H: We will also report as your Congress people need to be called to promote an abundance of bandwidth.

P: This just in…water doesn’t have to be wet to swim in

H: in NYC last week, the Virtual world Convention brings out thousands of Us 1,150 people from 624 companies participated in this 2nd annual event

P: Highlights of the week- IBM is teaming up with SL to create a private version

H:I don’t know if that means you have to have a pocket protector to get in but I’m sure it will help you log-in

P: As Christian Renaud, Cisco’s chief architect of VW stated

“I can think of a few reasons to not use public infrastructure with no guarantee of security,”

H: SL & IBM sitting in a tree, K-I-s-s-I-n-g

P; that is another

H: The Pres & co founder of Millions of US predicted the future will be one avatar that follows you from game to game

P: I have one of those too- it is called a stalker

H: Could you stalk yourself?

P: Only on an alter

H: I guess it’s like talking to yourself- do you ever type to yourself when you’re alone in your SL home?

P: Sony developing HOME as a lifestyle brand, acknowledges the DNA between Everquest & SL is more similar than that of chimpanzes & Humans

H: HOWLS & for those of you who want to play Tringo- now you can go to MEEZ

P:Ralph Steigner CEO of M of US stats that “Imagination will move things forward”

H: Good thing to know- now how about that imaginary hamburger I have been wanting Since I cant get off Second life to eat?

P:This just in- VW emphasis will run on the creation of a story line & character- Karl Jung estate not paid for originating that thought- no IP rights for dead Psychiatrists.

H: We could have psychotherapists here-

P: How you could you tell if they were really accredited though?

H: You might be able to buy your Phd on the Slexchange.

P: Metaverstility announces you can start your own VW in 6 – 8 weeks for 40 – 60K built on the Multiverse platform cheap at any price, especially during a recession.

H: Vastpark Partners and Two Fish are teaming up to bring an ecosystem of VW technologies & twofish bring the beer, literally any assets can be added to your world. Who pays is another story

P: Teen & kid VW / SN are at the height of their power, with Webkinz merchandise making 100’s of millions, Club Penguin & Bebo selling for 700 – 850 mm respectively to Disney & AOL

H: The killer app question is -How will SL be able to cash in on the economics of this kind of merchandising trend?

P: Inflatable dolls in your favorite skins?

H: Over 2007, the number of registered avatars in virtual worlds increased almost two fold. We now have close to 350 million avatars in existence–more than the U.S. population

P: “Virtual worlds are evolving the media model marrying great television programming to great online content,” said Yapp of MTV.

Question: Do you think the 2nd Question will ever be a rl TV show?

H: I don’t know Pooky - what was the first question?

P: Idk but going back to broadband- Kat Lemiux in her great blog Slnn.comm. said “Seeing one avatar break dance is impressive, but thirty avatars break dancing together could be too much for many installations”

H: There.com promises Brand Security and No Porn.

P: Who goes There?

H: There.com has a projected 7 million reg users by the end of 2008 what do you mean who goes there?

P: I was quoting Shakespeare.

H: save it for the end of the show

P: The circle of SecondLife Saturday morning was System of A Downer

H: Yes it was like Bugs Bunny had died and Saturday morning cartoons almost never existed - SL was disabled for 12 hours!!

P: Toplevel routing issues were being addressed all morning, midday and into evening. What did you do when the lights went out?

H: actually it was a blessing in disguise- my rl laundry

P: Joining the crowd, will more VW solve this problem?

ISPs who provide bandwidth for Second Life actually bundle many network links into large virtual links between their data centers. Traffic for many customers then flows across these bundles.

H: If your not adding the bandwidth, you’re just taking up space.

P: Or he who is not busy logging on is busy crashing. Other notable events this week was the Megashow at Small World Art Gallery, please be sure to go, it is a fantastic sim.

H: In other news, Prof. Bernard Foing of European Space Association, considered the father of the successful SMART-1 mission to the Moon, sees potential in using our Moon as a unique laboratory to export life from Earth to other worlds.

P: Do you see any of the other VW worlds as an opportunity to export avatars from SecondLife.

H: Only in the instance of a crash, A noite boa, esta é o relatório do tonight Portugal #14 one ahead of china

P: and that is The Slews *rips off microphone*
