I swung by last night to check out the fun and found that the section I explored resembled much of the welcome area and organization of the real Burning Man event. I also stumbled across a creative build by AM Radio and chatted with both AM and his friend Astra (I’ll try to grab a snapshot later).
I would have spent more time there except, well, the lag was out of sight. Perhaps not by 2006 standards, but definitely by 2008’s. I just don’t have any interest in walking on the end of a rubber band…especially when I can enjoy plenty of pixellated creativity across the grid without such hassles.
Hopefully things will lighten up later in the week (Burning Life is only open for 1 week – another brilliant move) and the sims will be passable. I really want to see what’s there…much of it won’t be recreated after the event is over.
*Unless you’re Cheen Pitney. Like we’re going to forget that one!
[UPDATE: Looks like I’m not the only one with this opinion!]
Just like the Post Secret blog in RL, Shopping Cart Disco offers up “SL Secret,” a window into the culture, drama and souls behind the grid. Each weekly entry offers up a handful of graphic “postcards” that say the things we’d never say in public…even the pixellated version of what stands for public in Second Life ™. Here’s a sample entry:
If you find this interesting, there’s a lot more where that came from. Highly recommended!
It’s always a joy to see whatever AM Radio is up to. He’s taken the “radio” theme to its logical conclusion – a radio dish farm! Come check out the work of one of the finest builder/artists on the grid.

My day started by listening to the choirs at the memorial ceremony at the Pentagon. As I walked in to work, I saw a single American flag representing each innocent life lost on 9/11 was planted on the Statehouse lawn. It was haunting yet magnificent.
I’m ending it mulling over the tragedy of the World Trade Center. Today’s a day to reflect and pay tribute. Only SL lets me do so in such a vivid way.
