Metaverse audio interviews now up

There's some really interesting audio interviews up from the Metaverse Roadmap Summit (which got a bunch of interesting people together to talk about the future of virtual worlds like Second Life). The Electric Sheep blog linked to this and explained the significance. You have to click on the questions, where you'll see the same question answered by dozens of different people.

There's also the Metaverse Sessions site, where you'll find an interview with me and my son, Patrick.


Howard’s nephew

Along my journey I've met some incredible people. Too many, if I really admit it to myself (557 emails are reminding me of that today). But, this evening I just started up Skype and Howard Greenstein told me about his nephew, named Sawyer, who is in a rehab hospital recovering from an unknown disease which has left him paralyzed. He's 12. Same age as my son.

He hasn't been able to move his legs for the past two weeks.

I can't even imagine going through that as a family. But, Howard is coping the same way I coped: turn to our global village and talk about it and try to start a meme to lift his nephew's spirits.

You might have remembered hearing Howard's name before. He ran the Twin Towers Fund, which raised millions of dollars in support for 9/11 victims.

Life is cruel sometimes. I'll go and take a picture and see if we can bring a smile to Sawyer's face.

It’s Steve Garfield’s week

It's VloggerCon week (Video blogging conference that'll be held in San Francisco next weekend), which means it's Steve Garfield's week. He's been videoblogging longer than most anyone I know. I love his Vlog Soup where he brings us the best of Videoblogs around the Web.

Is videoblogging hot? Well, Vloggercon is sold out.

Weird, before the registration system is closed, but Steve says there's still tickets left. I'll be there.
