GeekSpeak – how dangerous is social media?

Last week in GeekSpeak we concluded that social media is the worst invention ever.  Well, maybe.  Anyway, let’s talk about that this week.  What harm does it do?  Does it separate us all into small communities that hate each other?  Does it encourage hostility and violence?  Does it make us all slaves to advertising algorithms?

Or is it perhaps a good thing?  Does it get the whole world talking together?  Will we become one world because of Twitter and Facebook?  Will that be a world we want to live in?

If you could redesign social media what would you build?  What new media do you see coming?  Will the future zombify us or will we escape the trap?  You decide, in GeekSpeak 😊

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

The Dark Side of the Kid Community - Pen Dragon Reporting

 Due to the nature of, and implications of, this article no real names will be used to protect those who spoke with me in regards to this topic.

Second Life is a fantasy world where we can be and do whatever we, as residents, choose. Some people engage Second Life as giants or superheros while some live out a more opulent life than they could afford in reality. The range of possibilities are endless. Most people live their second life as adults, but there is a very large community of child avatars on the grid. According to most Second Life kids I spoke with the kid community is relatively safe. With family communities and teen hang-out sims there are a great deal of places for children to go and be safe, living as children should. However,as with all large population groups, there are inherent dangers and because we are dealing with child avatars these dangers are considered more heinous. While the Linden Labs Terms of Service (ToS) forbid things such as sexual ageplay, the allegation is that these things still happen and that there is a large pedophile community active in Second Life.

Not being involved in the family roleplay of Second Life until very recently I was rather oblivious to the issues that faced child avatars. I was aware of the term ageplay, wherein an adult plays the role of a child for the purpose of engaging in sex with an adult, but had never seen it first hand. A few weeks back, very shortly after adopting a child, I began a search for a place for us to vacation and stumbled across several sims that claimed to be family friendly nude beaches. While I found this disturbing I also know that there are those who live a naturist lifestyle and they too need places to spend time as a family but when I mentioned these places to a child friend of  my family she immediately told me that it was well known in the kid community that some of those places are home to predators.This disturbed me deeply and sparked my investigation into these allegations.

I began my research by digging through some of the history of Second Life and came across a report by Britain's Sky News on a pedophilia ring they discovered back in 2007. According to the report one of their journalists joined Second Life because he too had heard of this activity and went to investigate. He soon found that, according to his report, there was a virtual playground hidden away behind a strip mall, a playground where little girls who looked about 10 years old offered the Sky reporter's avatar a variety of sex acts. This playground was called ‘Wonderland” which the reporter believed was a reference to a child pornography ring that had been broken up by the British authorities. The response from Linden Labs was that the area was not age specific and because, despite looking like children, they claimed to be over 18 they had no intention of taking any action. I’ve searched for this Wonderland myself with no results but that doesn’t mean a similar place doesn’t exist, so I began to search the Second Life grid.
Most of the locations I found were relatively empty, and I made sure to check them multiple times at different hours. At most I found 1 or 2 children dancing or playing with no adults in sight. One sim owner even messaged me to ensure that I didn’t have bed intentions and made it a point to send me the sim rules. All had signs that stated clearly that certain areas were either clothing optional or strictly nude. Again, these were all advertised as Kid or Teen friendly. After several days of searching and investigating I was left lacking any hard evidence of any illicit activity, so I began asking some of the children I knew.

SLE: You've been in the kid community for a big a problem is ageplay or pedophilia?
“Jane”: It's getting better  than when I first started, but that's mostly because I went to all the wrong places. Since then I've not had many issues. The schools and kid community areas are all pretty safe, as well as most communities. When I was first exploring I went to a place called little playground but it was a bunch a pervs too. Seems like that's a thing in those kinda places

“Jill”: It really depends on where you go. There are safe places and there are some that aren’t. Most of ‘em it’s hard to tell until you get there. I just wanna be a kid. It’s gross!”

SLE: Do you know of any of those "wrong" places today and were you propositioned for sex frequently?

“Jill”: There was a beach, golden something or other. It was really bad. I couldn’t stand it. I never felt safe there.

“Billy”: I landed at a beach one time and everyone IM’d me asking some pretty creepy stuff. It was gold beach or golden beach. I dunno, I never went back.

“Jane”: That beach...golden sun is really bad, I was searching for beaches to take pictures at and stumbled across that one a few months ago and it was constant sexual IM's. I'm not sure if the littles playground still exists, but I think unless you accidentally come across these places you'd have to go looking for them because I do find most places now pretty safe.

“Jimmy”: I’ve heard of this Golden Beach, but never been there. It kinda scares me.

Golden Sun Beach. I had to find out if this place still existed and what was really happening there. After a cursory search I was easily able to find the sim, if it was the same sim at all.
I landed and looked around the landing zone. There were plenty of signs and warnings about no sex or nudity just as there had been at everyone of the other sims I had visited but as I moved my camera around I noticed something. There was a statue of a police officer stopping a naked man from entering one of the many shops that lined the area. What made this more disturbing were the children standing inside that very shop. They seemed to be chatting normally as though nothing was amiss.

I caught sight of a large group gathered at the other end of the mall area and approached to see what I might find out. They were gathered on a beach, some dancing but most standing idly. There were mostly scantily clad females who looked to be no older than teenagers with a mix of older looking males in the mix. As I stood I noticed that there was no one talking in local chat. For a group that size, I estimate between 20-30 avatars, I found that unusual. As I looked around the beach I found an older man standing naked behind a couple of younger looking girls who were sitting and reading on a beach lounger. Almost at the same time I received an instant message saying:

“Girl”: Hey misters, you wants a gud time?
I asked how old this girl was and she responded with 18. When I asked why her avatar looked so young she said:
“Girl”: I’m just small for my age.
Frighteningly, this was not the last time something of this nature occured. I visited this location again to see if, maybe, hopefully, this was a one time occurance. Sadly each time I returned there were more messages, all in the open, in local chat. A few were from adults to children, some were the reverse.

That raises the question, who is responsible? There is the possibility that this is happening without the knowledge of the sim owner. It was clearly stated at the landing point that this behavior was not tolerated and because this was happening in instant messages and not local it could be difficult for the sim owner to discover. The fact that I only received one message of this nature doesn’t prove anything, it is not empirical evidence that ageplay is secretly accepted. However, when taken with the anecdotal  evidence provided by the child avatars I spoke with it would lead me to believe something more sinister is going on.

For the sake of transparency and fairness I reached out to the person listed as the owner of the Golden Sun Beach groups, a woman named Sunflower. I sent her my message, innocently at first, saying: “ Hi Sunflower, I'm assuming you own Golden Sun Beach? If so could you contact me when you are online, please? Thanks!” I waited a full week for a reply that never came. I reached out again, via Instant Message, with a similar request. Still no answer after a week.I sent a final instant message getting no response before I wrote up an official interview request and sent it in note card form. Within the hour I was contacted by a woman claiming to be the CEO of the establishment. She requested not to be named. While we spoke for sometime as I presented her with the allegations of what was happening at her sim, she gave guarded and non answer answers, stating only that these people were clearly trolls and that Golden Sun Beach had “No Comment” on the activity. She asked, very clearly, that none of our interview be reported in the article.

I did my due diligence while researching for this article and found that, according to the kids I spoke with, Second Life is becoming far safer than it had previously been and there are far more safe places for people to role play as a child than there are dangerous ones. That being said, there are still serious dangers facing the kid community. This article is in no way intended to be proof positive that these activities are accepted and approved by the sim I visited. It is simply a look into the darker, more dangerous side of Second Life and the kid community.  

This investigation has opened my eyes to the truly sketchy people in Second Life and I will be bringing you further investigative reports on other places that may seem to hide in the shadows of the kid community.

GeekSpeak – what was the best invention ever?

Let’s vote on what was the best invention ever, the cleverest, the most productive of other inventions, the invention that caused the most happiness or the most health or maybe the invention that was the most beautiful and unexpected.  Was it politics, the toilet, cooking, writing, the use of fire, beer, antibiotics, contraceptives?

And what is the worst invention ever?  Are there inventions that should never have been invented?  Nuclear bombs, the internal combustion engine?

Should we consider animal inventions, such as the beaver dam, the structure of a beehive or the bubble net used by whales?

What do you hope to see invented in the future?  Come and discuss the past, present and future of inventions.  Bring a notebook.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have ideas for new subjects.

FALL FASHION TRENDS 2018 Cecilia Rosalie Reporting

Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since the last time I wrote something, but to make a long story short I am back, refreshed and bringing you tons of (fashionable) goodies, of course.

Summer is almost gone and it’s time to renew our wardrobe. In fact mine needs to be thrown away! Let’s take a look at the current fashion trends in Autumn 1018, the eccentric and surreal style is in fashion this year, and the designs and suggestions I have for you will impress you.


The fire red is one of the must have colors to be worn. The absolute monochrome is not forbidden and the total red look is imposed. Red will not be worn only in clothes but also in shoes and different accessories.


Pieces taken from the athletic clothing industry are embedded with chic pieces and the result is unique. Small details that make the outfit stand out and the athletic-chic style emphasizes its presence.


The crop-top trend came to stay so, the jackets for this year - leather, textile, inflatable - are cut higher and renew the fashion in the jackets, which until last year was long with sharp cut waist design.


The plaid pattern in all its glory. Vintage selection for Autumn 2018 that has truly been loved by most women. You will see it everywhere. In coats, skirts, trousers and shirts. The most dominating shades are gray and brown.


Sexy satin is back in a variety of colors. Satin dresses and tops in a straight line to flatter every shape and to highlight the femininity of every woman. We saw it with many designs such as a ties, a short sleeve,  long sleeve and more.

GeekSpeak – how do we fill the robot gap?

Robots will be running the world some day.  But what happens before they take over?  When the roads have both self-driving cars and human driven cars?  When some of us have bots that shop for us and some of us must go to the supermarket and shop with bots?  When some of us have only human friends and some have bot friends?

Will the roads have special lanes for self-driving cars?  Or special lanes for human driven cars?  Will there be laws, like the red flag act, that will prevent technology from growing? Will bots have to get degrees or diplomas just because humans need them?  Will marriages between humans and bots be allowed?

Will we want to stop the process?  Should we?  Will we be able to?

Come and talk about the gap between now and the robot world.

Why Herbalife is a Big Player in the Health and Nutrition Market

If you’re not already familiar with Herbalife Nutrition, allow this article to provide you with a brief overview regarding what is, perhaps, one of the best multi-level marketing corporations to ever sell and market nutrition supplements.

To further emphasize this point, let’s turn our attention to the company's sponsored athlete Heather Jackson; she is a Princeton University alumna who, after teaching English to students in South East Asia as well as teaching world history to students in California, discovered her true passion, sports.

This realization precipitated a career in ice hockey that later led to her becoming a professional triathlete, not to mention an ambassador for Herbalife Nutrition. Since becoming a professional triathlete in 2009, Jackson has earned multiple top spots at more than one Ironman 70.3 triathlons. And if all of this wasn’t enough, she recently set a new Wildflower Long Course Triathlon course record, a swim-bike-run race that has been held in Central California since 1983.

Needless to say, Heather Jackson attributes much of her success in professional sports to her use of the company's products; it should be noted that she is a professional athlete that, actually, practices what she preaches. Jackson not only endorses the company’s products but also uses them personally; according to, she relies on a variety of products to help her break through plateaus, improve her endurance, and train harder than ever.

Now that we have some background on one of their standout, sponsored athletes, let’s take a closer look at the company. Founded in 1980, Herbalife is a California-based multi-level marketing company that prides themselves on being a holistic purveyor of all things having to do with nutrition. The company boasts a workforce of approximately 8,000 people worldwide and has assets totaling $468 million. In addition, Herbalife routinely seeks opportunities to grow and evolve; in 2002, for example, they acquired JH Whitney and Company as well as Golden Gate Capital, before becoming an NYSE publicly traded company in 2004.

As far as the company's products are concerned, consumers can expect to find a myriad of products that are all aimed at improving the health of the consumer. In an effort to appeal to a large cross-section of people, Herbal life carries a line of products that are marketed to vegetarians as well as products for those who must adhere to a strictly kosher diet. Some of the company's products include

  • Skin care products

  • Meal-replacement shakes

  • Digestive health products

  • Heart health products

Needless to say, the company's product portfolio is very extensive and has something for nearly everyone who is interested in complementing an already healthy lifestyle or those who maybe just started their health and fitness journey.

If you have read this far into the article, you’re probably interested in learning more about this highly successful multi-level marketing company; if so, you’re encouraged to visit them online at for more information.

The Kindle mystery novel, “Femme Fatale Online,”whose unknown villain appears only as a sexy avatar, will continue to be offered free to SL participants through Wednesday, October 17.
To get your complimentary of the enovel by Eugene Rodgers, email a request to (your SL anonymity is safe since you don’t have to disclose your avatar or RL names). Include the letters “SLE” in the email.
You will receive a PDF copy, the same as we send to professional reviewers. (Amazon doesn’t allow authors to give out free copies in the same form as books ordered from them). You can read the book on Kindles, tablets, computers, and phones.
The book captivates readers with its story of an avatar who blackmails the hero, Rick, into industrial espionage and threatens the lives of him and his family. Detailed information on the book and author can be found on the book’s Amazon page (go to, search for “Femme Fatale Online,” and click on the title when it comes up) and on the book’s Facebook page (
Enjoy the challenge of following the clues, identifying the red herrings, and trying to figure out the real person behind the terrifying “Joan” avatar. As an anonymous reviewer posted on Amazon, “Who is the Femme Fatale Online? Read the book to find out. You may never use the internet again!” Have fun reading a story that’s part thriller and a subplot that has elements of romances, where a suspect tries to seduce the hero. Anyone who has ever wondered about the real person behind an SL friend, or suspected they weren’t who they pretended to be, will find the novel particularly engaging.
“Femme Fatale Online” was featured on the cable TV program, “America Trends.” Eugene Rodgers was named Virginia Author of the Year for an earlier book. He researched the background for the novel in SL, where his avatar is “Adolphe Menjou.”
Get your free copy if you appreciate mysteries and don’t object to some racy parts and raw language. And please post a review—even a one-sentence review—on Amazon.

GeekSpeak: What happens if we discover alien life? Join the discussion Saturday September 22nd at 12pm SLT

What if we discover life on other planets?  On Mars or in the Solar system or maybe light years away.  Maybe alien bacteria or maybe intelligent beings.  How will it affect our understanding of our own place in the universe?

Will we want to destroy them?  Or will we want to isolate ourselves from them so that they cannot destroy us?  Will we want to trade with them?  Make peace with them?

Will our religions change because we contact alien life?  Will they have religions that will change?  Or will they try to convert us?

Come and discuss the future of Earth.  Your humanity will be checked at the entrance.

Best wishes
