Opening party

Last Thursday took place the opening party of noWomannoLife Island. During the event we met interesting people such as Xharpo Otterson, a SL artist, who told us about the Monastery of Felix Meritis in SL where it is possible to buy monk clothes to sustain the RL monks. Nick Wallaby was also there, dancing at the Beduin Camp and chatting with Leonora Giove, who gave as present to all participants a Mabawa chicken to be placed on the shoulder. Also some AECT members came to visit the island with Seed Lane.
As always almost everyone bought a chicken to support Mabawa projects and a Souk artifact to support noWomannoLife projects. Thank you to all of them!

MacArthur Foundation: Virtual World Event on philanthropy on June 22nd

On June 22nd at 9:00 AM PST, Jonathan's avatar along with Second Life CEO Philip Rosedale will lead a discussion with residents on the role of philanthropy in virtual worlds.

I believe that the importance of virtual worlds may be less about their growth as economies, and more about their capacity for collaboration and human development. Activities in virtual worldsalready are supported by MacArthur and other foundations, but we have much to discover about the right role for philanthropy itself in virtual worlds.

We are interested in learning about virtual worlds and how to operate within them. We look to the residents to help us determine how to be helpful and are eager to share our on-going work in such areas as affordable housing, urban renewal, and human rights and international justice.

The details are here. There will be a live audio feed.

It will be interesting to see if Fanton's avatar looks just like him or something different.

Go to university and learn hot to build in SL

The Academy of Second Learning has two campuses: Thomson and Eson, where residents can learn how to build things and scripts in SL.
