Lost in RL

I came back home when the others were on their way into the Dreamland. I held me back quite well. Then, after having decided to go to bed myself, I turned back and came in. Silence. No IMs, just normal Notices from various Groups which anyway come per email every day, which is not bad. Wrote an off-line message to him and flew again, high, I made it till and over 5000. Guys! A crazy (maybe not for everyone!) idea: fly there and take off your clothes, everything! You will feel really pure!!!

That’s the message from my Night Flight today.

Hopefully, I will give Mirelle more time to be socially active in SL next time.

SL is a Quasi-Ad-Free Zone

Yesterday, as I saw the article in 2life.ch, it came to me: now I know what is so astonishingly different in Second Life!

It’s the absence of advertising!

Yes! I mean, we are all used to this ubiquitous phenomenon. It surrounds us, it tortures us, and at the same time it is so normal that we sometimes manage to ignore it. But it is THERE! Always! Billboards, stickers, labels, TV, DVD, PC, pop-ups (I hate them most!), mail, email, radio, newspapers, even books! The list is never-ending.

And here, in SL, apart from some political platforms and some major companies, who are actually present only on their land, there is a real ad-free paradise! Sure, from time to time you can see some “walking-billboards” announcing some events, which is not bad at all. But that’s all. PARADISE!

The next question that comes to my mind is – how long?
