Uri meets The Thinkers

by Alphaville Herald on 14/07/04 at 3:43 am

A couple weeks ago Hamlet Linden organized a meeting between me and The Thinkers — a group of 100+ Second Lifers that like to cogitate/discourse/ruminate about deep things etc. It was a fun time, but it does raise questions about exactly how far one can get with discussions in an online setting (at least one where one has to type). I find the format pretty restrictive in the paradoxical sense that it was hard to stay restricted to a single issue or topic. I think the problem is that typing allows too many gaps in the conversation that beg to be filled by too many people bursting with ideas. But then maybe I’m just a control freak?

Anyway, Hamlet has begun blogging the meeting in New World Notes.

    I didn’t like the pictures. They make me *look* like I have a pop-out ass and a beer gut. Uri goes on a diet next trip to SL.
