By Compe Lockwood “Welcome to the club,” Zani Fiertze greeted me as we walk through the dance floor. It is typical of Second life social spots:  a dance floor, stage, various amenities, and a spot where D.J.’s spin tunes. There are parties here, meetings, anniversary and birthday celebrations. But two things you don’t expect to […]

By Compe Lockwood Few mysteries are more famous then Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster. After decades of research and investigation, questions remain. Does the creature exist? What does it look like?

By Compe Lockwood Molaskey’s is one of the best pubs I’ve never seen. Or should I say, never seen in real life. But in Second Life, the cyber pub is the equivalent to the mythical Cheers bar – “You’ve got to go where everyone knows your name” – and this includes avatars. This Second Life […]

Virtual Libraries in SL: “Patrons not only read about characters in a novel; they interact with them”

February 25th, 2009  |  by  |  published in Real Life in Second Life, SL Entrepreneur Magazine

By Compe Lockwood I visited the library today. Okay, that sounds pretty mundane – but don’t click that mouse just yet! This is pretty cool. My librarian is an avatar and so am I.
