IBM's SL event: Now taking part in SL

Virtual Reality

So I’ve been invited to the IBM island, in the IQ region. We’re about to embark on a “quick collaborative building project” which should be interesting since I’ve never actually done anything like that in SL. In fact, I don’t tend to go on all that much – although my other half is totally hooked and is currently building a folk club. The problem I have with SL personally is that I’m basically a misanthrope and I don’t want to chat to a lot of strangers. For some reason I’m no less shy in the virtual world and since I don’t feel a pressing need to indulge in virtual shagging, I’ve found it hard to discover anything that thrilling to occupy my time. But hey, I’m willing to be turned – and as a technology I find it very exciting indeed.
