Just for your FYI the interview guest (avatar: Hat Carter & myself (avatar: Clinty Inglewood) where there at roughly the correct time with script prepared (took a while for us to “find each other” and meeting place. But much to our dismay only one other avatar pitched up – not to worry the interview fell away as we all decided to make the best of the situation and we went discovering. I was shown how to wear a “flight feather” and off we went to visit the platform suspended in the sky above Explorer Island NASA JPL (800 meters up). On the platform is a translucent 3d crater cone into which you can walk your avatar and have a 360 degree view of real photographs of the crater on Mars visited recently by the Mars explorer vehicle – it was awesome! A very interesting sim site – thanx to Hat Carter!
For those still wanting to hear about SL from seasoned user Harold Atkinson I will do a voice recorded interview and make it accessible via a link on the wiki hopefully. I have noted a few of the practical difficulties I experienced in trying to set up the SL event in my previous post – this was a valuable experience which I could not have learnt from a textbook. Thanks to Leigh Blackall for introducing SL to me on this FOC course – pity you did not make it Leigh – but all is not lost as it turned into a useful SDL (self directed learning session) discovery session instead – so no need to be “totally gutted”.
