GeekSpeak: how will humanity end? Join the discussion on March 16th at noon SLT


What fate do you most fear for our species?  Do you see the earth being destroyed by an asteroid or a solar flare, a black hole or collision with a rogue planet?  Or will we die a slow, agonizing death from a killer virus?  Or cause our own demise by a worldwide nuclear war?  Or will we slowly die out simply because we lack the will to survive or have children?

Most people expect that humanity will one day give way to another species.  How will that happen?  And what species will it be?  Will we maybe give way to our own AI creations and see them take over the world?

What fate are you most afraid of?  Or do you think that somehow some of us will always survive?  Come and discuss all the ways to our end, on this blue marble in space.  Bring an umbrella.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have ideas for new subjects.

GeekSpeak – The Logistics of Space- Join the discussion Saturday March 2nd at 12pm SLT


Soon we will start building in space and on the moon and Mars.  What will our bases and space stations look like?  What will they be made of?  It will be hard to make plastics on the moon, but aluminium is very common and it will be simple to make concrete from moon dust.  Water and iron are easy to find on asteroids.  Will future space stations be made entirely of iron?  Or ice?

This week we will try to imagine how future space locations will look when they are built and maintained from the local resources: ISRU (in-situ resource utilization).  They may look very different from the ones we see in science fiction.  Would you rather live in a metal base or an ice base?

What materials will we always need from Earth?  And what materials will people in space send back to Earth?  Discover the silk road of the future with us.

GRAND OPENING OF REFLECTIONS OF NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY PRESS RELEASE


GRAND OPENING OF REFLECTIONS OF NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY PRESS RELEASE
MARCH 2ND AT 11AM SLT - LIVE SHOW BY SL SINGER RICARDO AVALIRA 

Ricardo Avalira, owner of Clear Creek Nursery, is also a RL Nature Photographer and has just opened his Gallery right next to his nursery. He has been a photographer for over 20 years and has a unique way of capturing images of Nature.

He has brought these amazing images into Second Life to share with everyone. The frames he uses are unlike any other frames in Second Life. When you purchase one of his images and click on the photo, you get a menu whereby you can re-size the frame either smaller or larger. They can be re-sized small enough to fit on your coffee table or large enough to cover your whole wall without losing any clarity of the image. Even though his images are displayed at different sizes, the price for each one is the same.

Life can become so busy that we loose ourselves in the process of living. Ricardo’s vision in providing these images is to allow you to connect with Nature. His hope is that if you would allow the rest of the world to fall away while gazing at the image, this connection will happen.

He also provides a custom service whereby, if you send your favorite image to him, he will insert it in the frame. Since these frames come in different formats, he asks that you allow his discretion in choosing the perfect one for your image.

You can visit his Gallery here - http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Egret%20Key/137/37/22

Spotlight on Geek Speak - Discussions on everything from Quantum Theory to Artificial Intelligence- Pen Dragon Reporting...

The quest for knowledge and understanding is one of the most noble endeavors we can embark upon. Many find their passion for learning in history, mathematics or the study of society and some delve into science. But what if your curiosity is more far reaching? What if you prefer to discuss theoretical possibilities, everything from Quantum theory to  Artificial Intelligence or even the future of money? If your desire is to learn and discuss a wide variety of interesting and intellectual topics with others who share your thirst, then Geek Speak is for you.

Geek Speak is a weekly discussion with a wide and varying range of topics. The discussion is held every Saturday at noon SLT and is sure to have a lively and in depth conversation on topics that range from surviving climate change, alien life, avoiding a collision with asteroids and understanding the future. The discussion is led by Erik Goff and organized by his close friends and team of Kathen Ohtobide and Vulcan Viper. For the last eight years these three have worked on various education programs, starting with their project Edutopia, teaching classes like Astronomy, Chinese and Portuguese.



The SL Enquirer had the opportunity to sit down with all three of the minds behind Geek Speak recently, what follows is that interview.

SLE: What drew you all to educational classes?
Erik Goff: Because I did everything else already in sl lol.  I,with the team, had casinos, building companies, a job agency, a bank....Edutopia basically started because |I had some free land and I wanted to give something back to the community.

SLE: What is each of your roles in producing Geek Speak?
Vulcan Viper: Erik is the one to craft the introductory text after we have decided on a topic.
Erik Goff: We do not have any defined roles.  Well, I am the chairman, but that is about it.  We just brainstorm a new subject each week and then discuss if it is suitable for the event.
Vulcan Viper: I do think we have roles, if not officially agreed upon. Just things we sort of ended up doing.
Erik Goff: For example, we will not do quantum physics, however interesting that may seem..  it is just that nobody in the public will have anything useful to say about the subject... at least, we thought so... because we tried it once and i was overwhelmed by the vast knowledge of the public.
Kathen Ohtobide: we try not to do things that are too technical and we try to stick to subjects that can be discussed. Some topics are very interesting but there is not much to discuss.
Erik Goff: Yes, and subjects that are in the actuality.  So for example; last week we did the 'rapid disappearing of insects worldwide.”

SLE: For the topics you discuss, do you spend a lot of time researching?
Erik Goff: I usually watch youtube a few hours about the subject before a geekspeak session.



SLE: What drives you to choose the topics that you choose?
Erik Goff: Well, I like to nudge the world into a better direction.  so fairly often I also will propose subjects that do just that. We try to stay out pure politics but we do a lot of economics discussions for example, or green energy.
Kathen Ohtobide: I tend to suggest simply the subjects I am interested in.
Erik Goff: Most geeks want, and ask for, more space subjects though. There will be no shortage of that the coming years.
Kathen Ohtobide: I suppose some subjects tend to keep coming back, we often do space and robots and AI. Although we do go off topic quite a bit when talking about it
Erik Goff: We have regulars of course, but basically someone can jump in and be entertained,  depending on this persons' geek level.

SLE: If you could tell the general public something about your discussion that they may not know, what would it be?
Erik Goff: I always notice that we have real geeks in our place.  People that usually would be very silent at parties. I am happy they get the chance to say something in our place.
Kathen Ohtobide: It helps if you like Star Trek? Just a joke!
Vulcan Viper: I'm known for referring to a Star Trek episode every so often.
Kathen Ohtobide: I think of GS as a place where we are all equal. Some people there have lots of qualifications and some have none, but we all have a voice.
Erik Goff: I would like them to talk along  so it would help if they read about the subject before the event  They never do , of course.People just want to be entertained and many are very knowledgeable about a lot of subjects. As I said before, I was very amazed at our one 'quantum physics'  events. About half of the people who attended know a whole lot about quantum physics.



Geek Speak offers a text led discussion where everyone is welcome and has a voice, making it a unique learning and sharing experience. If you would like to join the experience, watch for notices posted here in the SL Enquirer every Saturday morning with the subject of that day’s discussion and a landmark to attend. The event is sure to be informative and fun.

GeekSpeak – the death of insects


Insects – we dislike most of them or regard them as a nuisance.  But we need them, all of them.  We need them as pollinators and as food for birds, bats, frogs, fish, small mammals.  We need some of them just because they are beautiful.  But they are declining at an alarming speed, at least in the western world, because of the widespread use of pesticides, huge areas of mono-culture and the destruction of insect habitats, such as hedges, woods and ponds.

Will insects turn into a limited precious resource?  Will we fight wars over insects?  Raid other countries for their insects?  Will we trade insects?  Will countries with plenty of insects be our future food powerhouses?  Will fortunes be made from rare insects?

What should be done to save the insects?  Should pesticides be banned?  Should farmers be paid to conserve insects?  Will it be a serious crime to kill insects?

Come and discuss our smallest frenemies at GeekSpeak.  Bring your bug spray.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have any ideas for new subjects.

How Technology Has Impacted Options for Entertainment



Technology has affected many different aspects of society, with one major area being entertainment. In fact, entertainment has continuously evolved and advanced throughout the decades. For instance, many traditional games involved props such as marbles or a jumping rope, and nowadays the phone or tablet is the popular gadget that is used.

You can see advancements demonstrated through movie theatres, and in particular the creation of 3D-movies that opened up people’s eyes and offered a brand-new way of watching film. Even the way people consume television is different to what it was once like.

There are countless other ways that entertainment has been impacted:

The gaming options

The modern-day gaming options are unlike what they were in the past, due to the fact that they are now rooted in technology. Many times, when people want to play a game, they simply download an app on their phone, or perhaps they even pull up a search engine on their laptop and thus play something online.

Even options that traditionally required you to go to real life spaces, such as in the case of casinos or betting games, are now available to play online through companies such as Unibet. Convenience is at the forefront of technological advancement, and online betting gives you the opportunity to make money, and to play a game no matter where you are, which is especially useful when you have a lot of extra time to kill.

Movie theatres

Who doesn’t love going to the movie theatre once in a while in order to watch something that just came out? While cinema isn’t that new in the grand scheme of things, as Huffington Post points out, the possibility to watch 3D movies is paving the way for new types of entertainment.

At-home media service providers

According to Techopedia, television has forever changed as a result of technology, and this is particularly due to at-home media service providers. For instance, many people opt to watch television shows and movies that have been out for a while on subscription-based platforms, such as Netflix, as opposed to on cable television.

Music platforms

Traditionally, the radio was the first source people turned to in order to listen to news, music, and radio plays, but now there are countless music platforms that allow you to listen to your favorite artists without having to pay for each single song or album. So long as you do what CNET recommends and subscribe to a site such as Spotify, you can listen to anyone through the use of the app, even when you are offline so long as you download the music to your phone.

Continuous innovation in the field

Innovation in the field of entertainment has shown no signs of slowing down or stopping. Everyday there are new technologies introduced on the market, some of which are also being used in the entertainment industry. Take this article about augmented reality from PC Mag, for instance, and how it can be used in modern day video games.

All in all, technology has made the options for entertainment endless. There is always something that can keep you busy during your free time, all you have to do is choose an entertainment source that piques your interest.

Spotlight on Clear Creek Nursery Pen Dragon Reporting...


Shopping in Second Life typically means you go to a store that looks like thousands of other standard looking stores, fighting the crowds at events and then coming home to relax. Wouldn’t it be nice to actually have an experience while shopping, to be able to relax and enjoy yourself while you find the perfect decor for your land? That place exists in Clear Creek Nursery.



Owned by Ricardo Avalira, Clear Creek Nursery offers a wide array of trees, flowers, fountains and decor perfect for giving your home or land that extra touch of nature. The nursery is designed to give you the experience of being outdoors as you peruse the wide assortment of items available, all designed by Ricardo himself.

”I lay out my walkways and start decorating around them. It creates a peaceful environment for people to enjoy. I've visited several nurseries over the years and most are just rows of products, I want mine to be different. I encourage people to walk the walkways, to experience the nature, to relax.” Ricardo said of Clear Creek Nursery.



Ricardo is a landscape photographer in real life and brings his eye for the beauty and tranquility of the natural world to his creations in Second Life. His images have even been featured in several galleries and have been sold in Second Life in resizable frames designed to either be put on a small desk or sized to cover an entire wall, affording the opportunity to stand before the image and feel the majesty of the natural world. Ricardo hope to expand his current nursery and offer the images again as part of his product line.

There is so much to see at Clear Creek Nursery, with a winding path that leads you through a beautifully designed garden, leading back to a rezzer that will display different scenes that Richardo has created. The scenes are complete with various seasons, animals and sounds that are sure to be the centerpiece anywhere they are displayed.
He even offers a scene that can be changed to reflect all four seasons. His scenes are created based on the seasons and holidays, often offering special items that reflect nature and serenity, including one at the top of a large tree with a zen garden and swing, perfect for escaping the stress and pressures of everyday life.



Richardo came to Second Life almost nine years ago and has aspirations of being a builder, creating prefab homes because of his creativity and over 30 years in construction in real life.

“I thought I'd be a builder, but instead I wound up designing trees and flowers. I like the creativity of making the scenes.” Richardo said. He opened his first nursery within the his first year in Second Life and hasn’t looked back. The vast majority of his items are now mesh. “I've had my own sim for several years and at one point the entire sim was covered with nursery items. When I first started there was no mesh, only sculpties.” he continued. His newer products are copy/mod and he includes some outdoor furniture in what he sells. “I do some outdoor furniture. Places that you can put out in your backyard and relax.”



Speaking with Richardo I found that, beyond just creating beautiful landscaping, it was very important to him that he provide customers with something that he hopes will allow them to escape everyday life, to relax and find peace. “I want to create a comfortable, relaxing shopping experience for people. I want them to come and connect with nature, give them a chance to escape their problems and relax. Think people move too fast, this gives them a chance to slow down a bit and smell the roses.” Customer support is also among his highest priorities, making sure that any questions are answered as quickly as possible.



When you are looking for that perfect piece of landscaping to complete your home or garden, be sure to check out Clear Creek Nursery where you will not only find all your decorating needs, but will enjoy the beauty of the experience as well.
