Ordinarily I don’t traffic in rumors, but this one seemed to good to pass up. If anyone could pull off a bigger, better metaverse, it would be Google. I’ve been hoping they’d just purchase Linden Lab for a couple years now, which, if Google is serious about a virtual world, must be under consideration.

A couple of prominent SLers are Twittering already including Mark Wallace of 3PointD and the never dull Prokofy Neva. The icon is from IconFactory’s awesome Twitterrific (Mac OS X only).
Happy New Year to everyone! Maybe this year, I’ll get off my butt and create some new content. I realized recently that I haven’t put out any fashion in two years now, and my current lines are definitely looking old — not a flexi-prim skirt in sight. Unfortunately I’ll be very busy this year with a new Web startup, plus helping my significant other with a new business as well.
I have worked on one big project this year in Second Life — designing an avatar for a customer, the process of which I documented for later recounting. It won’t be a full tutorial, more of a process guide for building a complete avatar from shape to skin to clothing and accessories. Hopefully I can get that up in the coming weeks.
