Me and My Monkey

Straddling two worlds

I've been out of Second Life for far too long. I'm back to bumping into walls, flying into trees, and feeling like a stranger in a strange land. And yet, it also feels like returning home but with different eyes.

Just checked out Utherverse today, and once again fully appreciated what we have in Second Life. The avatars over there were fidgety and dressed like they were ready for a pole. I did find a conservative outfit to attend a virtual convention, but then never could really find the presenters or many attendees.

I want to be supportive of virtual spaces for online conventions and events so will certainly attend another if I can figure out how to get where I need to be. Like any space, one can get lost. Finding one's way - and finding others to help show the way - is always a great moment in a virtual world.

Where are you hanging out these days, virtually speaking?
