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.

GeekSpeak – will Dataism kill Humanism?


We humans are, in this day and age, human-centric.  But there is a time coming when Big Data will be the center of all our actions and decisions.  Algorithms will make all our decisions for us.  They will decide whom we will marry, whom we will vote for.  Algorithms will know so much more about us than we know about ourselves.

When will we realize that we are not completely human any more?  When will ‘human’ mean something different? When will we be ruled by the algorithm?  Will Dataism become a new religion?  When will you be happy to give your life over to Google?

Come and discuss the transition from biological algorithms to electronic ones.  Bring your brain processing unit.

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.

GeekSpeak - The World Economy, Love it or Hate it? And how do we change it? April 16th 12pm SLT



Is the world finally waking up to the notion that the food we eat, the politicians we vote for, the news we see and the wars we fight have all been bought and paid for by a bunch of kleptocrats, that we live in a kleptocracy disguised as capitalism?

Is the system we live in basically destroying humanity?  And if so, how do we get out of this mess?

This week in GeekSpeak SL we will discuss how the world economy really works and how, or whether, it can be changed.
Will we be reading new 'Panama papers' in 10 years time or will this system collapse?  If it does collapse will we have a worldwide disaster or a better model for world finance?  Come and discuss the future of your wealth and your well-being.

GeekSpeak SL - should we give people the unlimited right to change their bodies? Saturday April 9th 12pm SLT




Should we be able to genetically enhance ourselves or our children?  Should we be able to add technology to our bodies?  Is it OK to have surgery that gives us the sight of eagles or makes it possible to fly?

Should we be allowed to change our species altogether?  What about people who want to be wolves or cats?  Or beetles?

The desire to improve or change the human species has caused a lot of misery in the past.  But we are now entering an era where it may be unstoppable.  Will we be wise enough to solve the ethical problems involved?  Will we know where to draw the line?

Come to GeekSpeak and tell us what your descendants will look like in two hundred years

Spotlight on the Meeting of the Minds. Sunny Love Holiday Reporting.




Do you enjoy discussing current events or topics that effect our modern society, but hate when things get heated and neither point of views are truly heard?
Are you longing for a beautiful gathering area where great minds can learn from one another with respect?

 Well of you answered yes to either of those questions, I don’t think there is a better discussion group in Second Life to enjoy good conversation with the respect your view deserves. Let me introduce to you  The Meeting of the Minds.

Recently I was invited to visit the Meeting of the Minds welcome center by the creators of this group, Starr Zackerly, and Timantti Vesiputous. I was pleasantly surprised by the warm and community like atmosphere.  I instantly felt comfortably, and was greeted quickly with a warm smile. Once granted access to the discussion venue, I felt positive vibes as I enjoyed the wonderful landscaping and D├ęcor that I am sure was created with the great idea of keeping things warm, light hearted and fun. 

After a lovely walk, we reached the discussion stage where most topics are covered, and I was more than happy to see two large you tube style television that allow you web access to pull up any proof you may need to prove your point. This discovery brought me such excitement I couldn’t wait to sit them down and find out more about this wonderful group.



Interview with Timantti

Sunny: When did the meeting of the minds begin and how did it come about?

Timantti : The Meeting of the Minds was created on May 11th of 2014. It started when Starr and I discussed trying to make a discussion and debate venue similar to the paltalk room we had met each other in. Starr also was inspired by her experience with the community at The O Lounge.

Sunny: How does one become a member?

Timantti : Anyone can join the group when they arrive at the Welcome Center by clicking on the gnome near the entrance.

Sunny: Are there any membership fees? If so how much and what is the purpose of the fee?

Timantti : There is a $100 Linden membership fee. The fee helps keep the group comfortably sized and adds some protection from others who aren't interested in having discussions.  All of the proceeds go directly to maintaining the venue.

Sunny: I like how this Group cover a wide range of subjects, are there any subjects that are taboo?



Timantti : There is no subject too taboo for us! We love to learn about and discuss new perspectives. We want people to feel save to bring up any topic for serious debate and discussion.

Sunny: Since you are discussing topics that people are most likely going to disagree with and many have strong feelings about….how do u keep the atmosphere friendly?

Timantti : We work as a community to maintain respect. When people begin to react emotionally we offer a queue board to help everyone stay on topic and have their opinions heard by the rest of the group.

Sunny: Can you briefly explain how the queue board works?



Timantti : Yes, the queue board gives structure to the discussions when the conversation gets emotional. Once someone clicks the queue button their name appears on the board and it allows them 2 minutes to make their point before it’s the next persons turn.  We also have media boards so that people can display websites or videos to support their arguments.

Sunny: Yes I see and really like that. Also you have another way for discussion to be held called the round table.  Can you briefly explain it works?

Timantti : The round table was a concept designed by our admin Catalina. At the round table 2-4 people have the opportunity to have a moderated debate. These are for more structured and formal debates, where the audience would listen and comment after it's finished.

Sunny: You also have a wonderful lady by the name of Myrraiel that holds Biological Anthropology lectures as well. Please tell our readers a little about that?

Timantti : Myrraiel is working on her MA and has offered to share her knowledge with us.  Each Friday she leads a discussion on a topic related to Biological Anthropology. Topics include sexuality, evolution and genetics.



Sunny: This sim is beautiful and looks like has a lot of neat gathering areas, Please explain one or two of them for us.

Timantti: We have a beautiful campfire area. It’s equipped with video viewers so you can share songs and clips while you relax.  The campfire is great for fun and casual conversations. Then we have a fishing hole that features CC's Custom Creations for 7seas fishing. There's also a mermaid oasis under the water and a garden full of fun surprises that you can find by rezzing a boat.

Sunny: What would be the best way for our readers to learn more about this excited group?

Timantti : They can learn more about us on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MotMSL.  We also have a video on youtube that explains what we do at Meeting of the Minds and shows a walkthrough of the venue.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQuqX491qic


Sunny: I have had a wonderful time today. Thank you for showing me around and enlighten me. It was a pleasure to meet all of you.

Timantti: Thanks so much for stopping by.  We have more events and discussions planned, hopefully you can stop by again and get into the debate. Take care and stop by anytime!

Geekspeak for Geeks to Speak- Mikile Vinciolo Reporting…




Never in my life as an upcoming nerd or geek would I have imagined it being cool. Being a nerd and/or geek was shunned in my formative years as a student in lower education institutions.

Talking about gaming, technology, intergalactic activity and a desire to participate in aforementioned list made us an automatic target for wedgies, revile conversation, smear campaigns, and, in extreme cases, having to defend ourselves in courtyards after-school. 
Being nerd also had its perks, especially in the realm of academics, which is all that really was of consequence to us gain of mega-brains.

We excelled at subjects that other found difficult to wrap their diminutive brains around making us favorites of the Academia. We were doted over by teachers, counselors and the school for raising their national rankings on the catalog of premier schools. We were often sought out by fellow classmate/schoolmates for help with homework or test tasking tips to help the academically ailing cure their stupidity "disease".
