Canary Beck

Ebbe Altberg, CEO of Linden Lab, revealed to Spanish newspaper EL PAIS that he plans to add a sales tax to in-world transactions in Project Sansar (Linden Lab’s next generation platform) – and that it will be 5%.* (See the bottom of the article for an update on the specificity of this number from Peter Gray).

Altberg said (and I paraphrase / translate from the spanish original) that Second Life has suffered from its own real estate bubble, where residents can rent a 256×256 metre plot of virtual land for $295/month, and that this business model was not intended for the average consumer. Renting virtual land is an expensive hobby or for those who want to run a virtual business.

show #57: teaching in sl = dancing with the power points?

Was so thrilled to be a part! Thanks, Drax!

the drax files radio hour [with jo yardley]

show #57 show #57

today’s show title is [obviously!] a play on the [most common?] educational use of second life & yes, while we are painting with a broad brush again, let us be honest – have you not been invited to a dance party where folks ran through a power point at the same time? jo and i sure have!

anyways: enjoy an hour of nuance on the subject and feed on the great insight from prisilla “silly” avro, passionate elementary school teacher & virtual model, who embraces technology in education as long as it is not used to “drill & kill”:

now read onward for even more parsing of the issue:

– drax is now obsessed with charlie brooker [and has a playlist of “the black mirror” on youtube]

thank you for coming to my rez day party [thx to berry for taking pics]
