Studio 777 Goes Public- Interview with Luke Slingshot - Piers Diesel Reporting

 Studio 777 is like the Vegas of Second Life. It is an institution in SL business which offers the residents not only the option of skill gaming and winning money but also entertainment. Studio 777 also offer residents the chance to find virtual employment not only with the company but with other companies in Second Life as well.

It is not surprising when Studio 777 announced that they were going public allowing residents in Second Life to be shareholders. Finally residents were able to buy shares.  60% of shares were sold out within an hour on that first day. The owner of Studio 777 Luke Slingshot and his team surprised but also knew that residents who were buying shares could see that this was a business to invest in now and for the future.

Meet Debi Palmira; Second Life’s Renowned DJ Manager- Piers Diesel Reporting...

Have you ever wanted to know what it would be like to be a music manager in Second Life?

 It can be a tough and demanding job especially when you are Debi Palmira who managers Dj’s in Second Life. I took the opportunity while she wasn’t busy to chat with her about her work and to find out a little bit about her when she isn’t busy working.

Piers: Can you tell our readers a bit about yourself?

Debi:  I am born and raised in Minnesota. Been on Second Life since Dec 2008. Music was a big part of my family's life whether it be playing an instrument (I played flute lol) to whatever was put on to listen on the stereo. So really, it's no surprise I gravitated to the music scene not long after starting SL.

Take Part in Combat; Show Your Brutal Side- Piers Diesel Reporting...

Real life is rarely on the verge of mortal combat. Even when war takes place, most just watch it on television. No one joins the army. This leaves a void in many. The desire for all-out fights never gets fulfilled. The monotony of life takes over us and the pent-up aggression begins to show up as defects in our personalities. This may explain some weird behavior in real life.
But thanks to Second Life, we have a few places where we can release our pent-up emotions. These places let you indulge in your brutal fantasies at no cost to real life.

The Indie Scene in Second Life- Piers Diesel Reporting...

In Second Life we are fortunate to have a vast genre of music to suit everyone’s taste in music.

Indie music and the indie underground movement in Second Life, is as popular as it is in Real Life. The three genre of music which dominates the Second Life music scene are:

  • Tech/dance/trance
  • Indie
  • Country

Indie music is a genre of alternative rock that originated in the United Kingdom and the United States in the 1980s. Indie bands in Real Life such as the Artic Monkeys, Babyshambles, Beck, Kasabian and many more can be heard spinning from the DJs in Second Life. However, you will find a lot more underground indie groups which may not have made it main stream but have a good following of fans.

So where do you go if you want to hear indie music in Second Life?

Super Intelligence or Super Rich?- Piers Diesel Reporting...

Being super intelligent is something which we cannot buy. You can gain an education to become knowledgeable but this will not make you super intelligent. Being Super Rich does not promise happiness and with more money can bring more problems But it can reduce some stresses associated with paying bills and helping others.

We are lead to believe that if we are intelligent we can on this alone make ourselves rich. Which can be the case with CEO and founders of many companies in Real Life such as Bill Gates who was educated at Lakeside school (1968-1973) and Harvard University (1973-1975) and with this knowledge created Microsoft. However, you do not need to be super intelligent to become rich or even super rich, for example Sir Richard Branson owner of Virgin Airlines never went to university. However, he made his money and built his company from the ground up and would be classified as being super rich.

So I ask this question to residents of Second Life to see which one they would choose if they had the options to pick
