Nature's first hue


Yesterday I spent very little time in Second Life. First Life kind of took over, with a full day of caring for my sick kid, teaching class, then driving to Atlanta for an invited talk at a friend's class. I got to talk to them about using Second Life to make machinima, and they seemed to dig it. They asked the usual questions about Second Life. "OMG, did you hear about the guy that divorced his wife because of a Second Life affair? Can you have sex in Second Life?"

I answered that like any creative space, you could use Second Life to do whatever you want -- have an affair, become a floating television, or create art. It's inevitable, though -- whenever I talk about Second Life, people instantly go to the sex place. Is it weird that I'm not compelled to use SL for sex at all?

I put on all the yellow that *katat0nik* has made today -- it's a surprisingly small amount! Pink and teal she's got in spades, but yellow you have to hunt for. My look is vaguely inspired by .hack/ -- more of a general girl-in-cloak feeling than any character in particular. Maybe I simply wanted to wear the staff.
