    Dude! You are scaring me with your excitement about the new platform. I’m getting more afraid to see what they did, instead of excited. I also fail to see why LL is holding back.

    just saying, restricting the cam should always only be optional or it will be the end of any free Machinima maybe… + i love 1920s Berlin! it is wunderbar!

    I have a new book that I paid for a dollar recently. I chuckled when I saw it in the book store. it was printed during the hype years and it is titled “How to Make Money in Second Life”. There is a whole section of the book for corporate presentation and presence in Second Life. The hype of how to become a mega mogul real estate agent is in there too. I love to look at it every now and then and then.
