The Long and Winding Road

1pathfinder_001

 

The long and winding road led me to him. Pathfinder aka John Lester *_* My heroe in Virtual worlds and founder of The Hypergrid Adventurers Club. An idol for a grid hopper like me :O)

Pathfinder is a former Second Life employee and icon: “From 2005-2010, John worked at Linden Lab, the creators of Second Life. At Linden Lab he led the development of the education and healthcare markets while evangelizing the innovative use of virtual worlds in research, training and distance education.” Read more: http://about.me/pathfinder

But now he has his own grid Pathlandia and I visited it the other day, jumping from OsGrid, and had a nice chat with John at his cosy campfire. The region is full of nice freebies and I got a box full of wonderful mesh flowers. Thanks John for your warm welcome and I will certainly try to attend next Hypergid adventure  <3

If you want to visit Pathlandia (of course you do!) HG adress is: pathlandia.dlinkddns.com:9000:Pathlandia

The Long and Winding Road to John from Mera, his most persistent stalker:

“The long and winding road that leads to your door
Will never disappear
I’ve seen that road before it always leads me here
Leads me to your door”

The Biggest Copybotter in the Metaverse?

“….This is exactly what Marketplace was built and designed for. To parse millions of things and allow people to sell one item of interest. The most important content deemed “worth” selling is already parsed and categorized thanks to you, the community. Making a copy of Marketplace as a system and repurposing it as an Indie Developer content service for Desura would entail flipping a couple of content permission switches and readjusting the percentages in favor of Linden Lab.

As seen with recent viewers, it’s perfectly feasible to export content as a Collada model and even with the textures – so long as you have full permissions on the item. But then, who controls the master switch for content permissions, eh?

This puts Linden Lab squarely in the realm of the biggest Copy-Botter outfit in Second Life.” ~ Will Burns – Andromeda Media Group

He just might be on to something big here…. Read on:

Words from Rod Humble

Rod Humble: “But what I can say is that we’re continuing to invest in and develop Second Life, of course, but beyond that, virtual worlds are a space in which I think there remains a lot of opportunity, and we’re in a great position from a number of perspectives to be a leader in the next generation.”

Shava Nerad: Dear Linden Lab — you really blew it

Linden Lab, Second Life and their creators by +Shava Nerad:

You agree that the license includes the right to copy, analyze and use any of your Content as Linden Lab may deem necessary or desirable for purposes of debugging, testing, or providing support or development services in connection with the Service and future improvements to the Service.

“This means that not only +Tuna Oddfellow’s art, but the way we present it and the methods of the Odd Ball and the Cathedral Effect that we present as entertainment and therapeutics in Second Life are conceivably Linden Labs’ property if we present them in Second Life. We didn’t see this until today, and it wasn’t presented to users in any prominent way. Please consider any presentations we’ve done since the change in TOS as lacking due notice.

This is heinous and contrary to every aspect of creator centered culture that#lindenlab and #secondlife has promoted, and if you don’t pull back on this policy I’m going to actively encourage creators in SL to pull out.Tuna just had his eighth rezday, and I’m coming up on mine. Back in the day we were both key performers at SLCCs, and represented the community at academic and research conferences and confabs of various sorts, too, often alongside Pathfinder/John Lester in the Boston medical and university communities.

We’ve seen this project through a lot of ups and downs and continued to stick with it. But you have to support our rights as creators to our own material, or we can’t continue here. It makes no sense. It’s hostile, and clueless on your part.I know Rodvic came out of the gaming community but this is a serious game for us — we aren’t here to throw our time away — we want to retain value. We aren’t some young Elvis types who don’t know how to read a contract and will throw our talent and time down the hole in a privy because we were raised in a barn.

Even if we trusted you (which, frankly, LL has given us reason to not hold perfect trust over the years — I’ll remember the purge that lost us Pathfinder and many other of the Lindens, for example, and gutted support), the company could be sold with our assets as part of the deal and you would have no control over it.

What in the world are you thinking, taking my stuff like this?

We should be dumping tea in your harbor.

No, never, mind. We should just pick up our toys, and leave. It’s not worth it any more. So sad.

FIX IT OR BE DONE.

Oddfellow Studios has gone pitch dark, with nothing but a notecard giver with this essay on it.

I encourage other creators to turn their sims dark too, nothing but black and a notecard giver explaining the new TOS and why we have left nothing behind but a protest.

You really blew it
