Russell Eponym played at the grand opening of Philadelphia, the “Brotherly Love City” in SL. It was beautiful, and his voice is always enchanting. I imagine there was around twenty people that showed up.
Today is the last day I’ll be on the internet until the twenty seventh. I’ll be on then for the E&S reading and philosophy discussion at 10amSLT/PST. I’ve not yet decided on a topic, so if you have any suggestions please feel free to comment.
Not much of an update today I’m afraid. I haven’t been going to many events in SL because of packing and the holidays. I did manage to make it to Extropia DaSilva’s Annual Christmas Lecture. It was called “Thinkers Lecture 2011: Pondscum, Scared Mice, and the Global Brain”. You can find the entire transcript over on her blog, here. It was excellent. Many, many people showed up. It’s probably the lecture that’s made me think the most. I have to say it was very well done. It presented the idea that technology may enable the human mind to connect to a “global brain”, a Facebook like feature in our brains that would allow our friends to feel what we feel, tune into our thoughts, sensations, emotions, etc. Communication on a grand scale. Definitely an interesting read, and I highly suggest you do if you weren’t able to make it to the online lecture.
I’m excited for the events to start up again in the new year. Hopefully I’ll be able to get around.
