  • ken was once before in a short-lived immersive vr world called sansar [we like his tiger avatar in second life much better]

  • so many topics that ken’s stories bring to the fore = in re damage social media giants have done [globally!] please follow this story from facebook in india:

  • on a lighter note: thanks to ai ken was able to overcome writer’s block. just think of what he could have accomplished would have he had access to gpt-3

  • what is happening in second life? very proud of shyla and her story:
  • did i mention my birthday? sorry narcissism can’t be cured overnight …
