Herald Writers Pwn Nerd of the Week

by Alphaville Herald on 30/03/07 at 11:17 am


The long awaited episode #2 of Nerd of the Week is out (or has been for weeks, does it matter?), and Herald staffers figure heavily in the cutting edge of nerddom. In particular, we get more than enough words or wisdom from Editorial Director Walker Spaight (aka Mark Wallace) and Prokofy Neva. And did Prok really say that she is only temporarily a female in real life? I stole some screenshots and posted them along with a synopsis of the corresponding discussion below the fold. –Uri

Furturist Jerry Paffendorf shows off some of the Anshe Pr0n he keeps on his bedroom wall.

Prok explains how Second Life is really all about love and human kindness.

Lynette Radio describes her one night stand with Philip Linden.

Spin Martin talks about his personal holy grail: someday having hair like Philip’s.

Hiro Pendragon insists that ‘second lifer’ and ‘nerd’ are synonymous. Really!

Walker Spaight: the Alistair Cook Cookeof the metaverse.

    The new Nerd of the Week episode is pretty awesome. I like that they threw in that penis thing with Anshe. Here are the two links:



    (I always like to include the revver link in case people want to click on it and help the filmmakers make a dime or two)

    Yes, I said it. Why does it matter to you so much?

    Love and human kindness used in the same sentence as Prok???

    Hahahahah…I get it…early April Fools joke.

    Yeah I’m glad to see some people have a good sense of humor about Flying Penises and such. You really can’t take that stuff too seriously, and there are too many people in SL who do. It’s quite sad really. But that’s just my opinion.

    Alastair Cook should not be confused with Alistair Cooke, journalist and broadcaster.

    Yes Sunshine, that’s the one I linked to. I’ll fix the spelling.

    Yes, Walker is really like the Alistair Cooke of the Metaverse, that’s a good one, like Alistair moved between the worlds of American and British politics, so Walker moves between the worlds of the Metaverse.

    It’s funny to think of people carrying on the mantle of Alistair Cooke into a new form of media, just as Alistair Cooke himself dies at the age of 95.

    Well, the corporations tend to take those flying penises and that sort of thing pretty seriously, because they take their money pretty seriously.

    The other day I was saying to another SL resident that this sort of thing hurts her, too. She asked how. I explained, well, you work for those corporations (as she does), and if they leave, so does your work. Seems pretty elementary to me.

    Actually, though, it’s all our money, all our businesses, and people do tend to take their money seriously. You get a place full of flying penises, and that’s not good for any of us, and hurts more than just Anshe.

    That ‘podcaster’ label really irritates me. Gawd, nerd typecasting.
