Cartography of Second Life

Surprise! Cartography enthusiast and mapping patron David Rumsey was there too: Viewing Second Life.

I am Ellie Heartsdale. I owned a small corner plot of land on an island sim in the west. I built a little house there, for me and the piggies. I went to the Second Life synagogue, in Nessus, on Friday nights.

My father was still alive then. I was working for the State of Arizona, Department of Health Services, Office for Children with Special Health Care Needs, as chief research statistician. That was my title, “Research Statistician, chief”.

I was happy, but as usual, didn’t realize it at the time.

Second Life View and Reviewed

I have a mix of items about Linden Lab’s virtual world, Second Life, for today’s post. First let me emphasize how much I enjoy Second Life. Time in Second Life for me is excitement and delight, interacting with people from around the globe, the opportunity to practice my foreign language skills, learn about other cultures and beliefs, history and couture, computing and technology, human nature and music. I have a wonderful there.

Death comes to Second Life, again

Some sad Second Life news has floated by as I idle away my unemployed days.

Farewell, Pathfinder Linden!

I enjoyed happy hours rummaging through your bookshelves, playing your harpsichord, dredging through the copy-mod transferable sheet music, peeking at your personal real life family photos, and perusing the CD cases you thoughtfully left strewn about on the floor of your in-world office.

Although rumored to be aloof, Pathfinder a.k.a. John Lester was an effective advocate of educational applications for Second Life, and a contributor in the healthcare field. I wish Linden Lab kept him on staff, rather than eliminating his job.
