“I think my blog is an important resource not only on the history of Second Life but the history of the larger issues of the Internet, of which Second Life is a microcosm. And I may make a “Best of” e-book of some of it if I can find time.”
Now it’s the history side of matters that really strikes the chord because I’ve been patchy about moving my Your2ndPlace content here. The only access to said content that I have is via The Wayback Machine and it’s painful moving the content across and then of course links are dead etc.
However, the Your2ndPlace archives tell a story and I’m a fan of stories. Some of the content now strikes me as overly dramatic, unfairly critical of Linden Lab and in a style that I try to avoid these days. However, warts and all, it is what it is and it is probably better that I move my content across. I also told Konner McDonnell that I’d move his content across, I have moved a handful of Konner’s posts across but I need to get back to it.
Your2ndPlace was a multi blogger platform, kindly provided by Nobody Fugazi who paid the bills. Although not all of the bloggers blogged regular, some of those involved were: Alan Bamboo, Arthur Fermi, Ash Wade, Cadence Juran, Jezebel Bailey, Konner McDonnell, Marx Dudek, Nobody Fugazi, Sando Haller and Sarah Nerd.
Whereas I’d love to move everyone’s content somewhere, I don’t have permission to do so. They haven’t refused me permission, I haven’t asked them, but as I said earlier, it’s quite painful moving content across from The Wayback Machine. Jezebel Bailey of course, has been known to blog here.
