Herald Editor Wins Presitigious Industry Award

by Alphaville Herald on 22/06/06 at 11:05 am


His is not the prettiest face you’ll ever see in the Herald, but send him a a woot-ful congratulations anyway today. Who is he? He’s Peter Ludlow, the typist for Herald founder and editor emeritus Urizenus Sklar, and he’s just been named one of the ten most influential gamers of all time by no less august a body than MTV. We always knew the Herald was the most important virtual press outlet around, but it’s good to see the rest of the world is catching up. We tried to reach Uri for comment on the Herald yacht, but our questions were drowned out by the fizz of Cristal coming from belowdecks. Apparently, the retired editor was so shocked at hearing the news that he has taken to bed for a round of “massage therapy.” We hope to bring you his reaction as soon as he recovers. In the meantime: w00t!!!1!

    A round of congratulatory applause to you Mr L. You certainly have come a long way since the early days of AVH all those years ago. I know cause i was there. Been keeping track still regularly, even tho i never got into SL more than 1 trial many moons ago. Certainly has been an ‘ interesting ‘ ride for lack of better words hasn’t it?

    May you and your RL chums continue to have a sizeable impact on the cultural fabric of SL and future mmorpgs for years to come as well. :-) *raises glass*

    - RB.
    Down with EA.
    Keep fighting the good fight.

    Thanks for the kind thoughts all. Maybe after I finish this book on the philosophy of time I’ll come back to SL and we’ll stir up some brand new shit for old time’s sake.

    Meanwhile, back to the massage table. It’s time for my happy ending!
