2013 Stech: The man who did not talk. A true story

The man who did not talk. A true story
-
-
ByTreacle Darlandes
-
I was new, not good with computers, and bored. I was wearing a short skirt, bling chest rings, blinging far and wide through my freebie leather jacket. It seemed that was the thing to do. Second Life appeared to be lacking in depth and communication and I saw males running around wearing unmentionable attachments.  (I had clearly been to the wrong places).
-
“There must be some sensible people here somewhere” I thought. “Maybe there are some nice people at a yachting club”. I searched and found the Nantucket Yacht Club and teleported onto a jetty.

2013 VIDEO: Video, animated video, machinima? What term to use?

Video, animated video, machinima?
-
-
What term to use? It does not matter when we talk among ourselves. It does matter when we talk to public. To communicate, we need to use language the public understands.
-
Videos are what people have been renting or buying for years. Now they are finding videos on YouTube, and other places.  See what YouTube talks about:

"Videos from your channel subscriptions and personalized video recommendations appear below. YouTube sorts these videos based on what we think you'll want to watch next."
Machinima is a particular method for making animated videos.  A machinima is a type of animated video.  An animated video is a kind of video.   So all three terms are correct.   But video is what most people understand.  
  • Test for yourself.  
  • Tell your non-techie friends you make machinimas.  
  •  Note the response.  
  • Then tell them you make videos.    
It is a lot like beef.  A steer is a way of making beef.  But nobody tries to sell cut-up steer parts.  They sell beef.   And sausage--they don't even tell you what goes into that.   
-
A machinima is a way of making videos.   But for promotion and marketing you probably want to be dealing with videos or animated videos.    And for describing your skills, services ad products (in Linkedin, for example), I'll bet you want to include video editing, video production, and the like.

2013 STECH: Google Plus--Now with Communities!

Google Plus--Now with Communities!
-
Google plus has taken the next step.  Communities.  And we, the people from the virtual worlds, are right in step.   The Create Community feature had hardly opened when virtual worlds communities started to appear.
-
Here is a link: Google+
-
A sampling of communities already formed:
  • Virtual World Video
  • Virtual Educators
  • -
  • Second Life Art
  • Second Life Music
  • Second Life and other virtual worlds
  • Second Life
  • -
  • OSgrid.org
By the time you read this, there will probably be more, so look for yourself.  Or create your own community if you want.
-
Advantages of  Google+
  • It is not Facebook
  • Any Google account (Gmail) works also with G+
  • You can turn off all game invitations in one click
  • You can use a voice-video hangout with members 
  • No limit on the number of groups you can join
  • The population seems to be more tech-savvy
  • Google has shown little interest in booting people with SL names
