Thanks to Uncle Dave Wallace (to the left), I now feel properly attired in SecondLife:
Hanging out on the The Podcast Network island, where the Australian Twitterarti drop in and out. Donated some money to Cameron so he’s not taking food from his family’s mouth to create a place to visit.
Duncan Riley from Techcrunch posted his thoughts on meeting in SecondLife, especially the new voice/talk interface and the intersection of methods of interacting with each other.
As I stated recently, I was wrong about SecondLife. It’s a social environment.
More experiments to come.
More cluely people join the Australian DPE team. It’s way cool having smart friends on the team to balance my ignorance on all Microsoft matters important.
A Special shout out to the ever helpful Jeffa and Captain Coates.
Frank seems to be relieving his end-of-year frustrations by changing my title in the HR system. It will be cool to see my first Microsoft Performance Evaluation with “Professional Geek” A story to tell the grand kids.
