Second Life

It is a fundamental law of the universe that at some point every blog must mention Second Life. Today is our turn.

Sorry about that.

I won’t be harping on the rampant commercialism in Second Life, nor the unrestricted virtual sex that seems to be the focus of it. I’m not all that interested. Rather I’d like to mention that a few places in Second Life that are worth visiting.

Snapshot from the OCTOBER COUNTRY in Second Life

1. October Country [Pictured above] – is a Halloween themed place that features radio dramas |TELEPORT| like the NPR version of The Empire Strikes Back.

2. Bantam Dell Island – a publisher’s home, featuring some events by authors |TELEPORT|

3. Podcast Island |TELEPORT| Which features podcasters and podcasting events.

4. Book Island |TELEPORT| Bookstores and authors pitching books.

On Sunday (tomorrow at the time of this post) there will be an author reading by Paul Levinson you can |TELEPORT| there at 2pm (Pacific Standard Time)

Phil D’Amato, a forensic scientist working for the NYPD, is visiting an old friend in rural Pennsylvania–home of the Amish. When the friend with no known allergies drops dead of a sudden allergic reaction, D’Amato decides to investigate.

As he probes deeper, it becomes apparent that the Amish are not the technophobes they appear to be.

Episode #31 of The Sci Phi Show |MP3| is on the topic of the “chronology protection conjecture” (an idea that physicist Stephen Hawking used to answer the question of why historic events don’t appear to be flooded with time traveling tourists). More specifically under discussion is the concept as represented in Paul Levinson’s story and radio drama of The Chronology Protection Case. Before you listen to the analysis check out the original tale itself |MP3| which can be found in the same feed. On the topic of the feed, you can subscribe to the podcast via this link:
