SL Newser: News and Commentary: Real-Life News Article on Avatar Clothing Isn't News- Bixyl Shuftan Reporting...

This is news? At least that's what I was thinking when I first heard of the study, featured in an ABC article (and other sources). Canadian researchers "stalked through" Second Life observing over four hundred avatars "for several weeks." Their conclusion: females wear less clothing.

"Well DUH! Thank you Captain Obvious."

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE- Interview with Bill Kaye of (SLBR)Second Life Business Review- Lanai Jarrico Reporting...


   Second Life has a versatile atmosphere with many activities and events happening around the clock. Magazines and media sources across the grid make their virtual living by providing exposure to the various business and venues that support entertainment. Mixing business and pleasure is frowned upon in certain situations and in others, it is the perfect combination for bringing people together from both sides of the virtual spectrum.

With the increase of media sources all competing for readers, group members, advertisers and stories, it is difficult for avatars to get their news in one place, or they spend way too much time searching through media sources that satisfies all their interests and provide them services.

Recently, I had a meeting with Bill Kaye, an up and coming business journalist with an eye for hot topics to help SL entrepreneurs succeed. We discussed how we could combine our sources to give our readers a combination of Business and entertainment news.

On November 18, 2012, SLBR and SLE came into an agreement to give readers access from both sources. You can find business news on The SL Enquirer main tabs, as well as a convenient RSS feed of their latest headlines on the left column of our site. In exchange, SLBR features SLE’s top stories on their news source. With ideas still on the table for new projects, I thought it would be fitting to have a sit down and discuss our plans so you all know what to expect with this collaboration.

A final workshop will also include applying guided imaginary to the SL experience from Pura Vida Wellness Resort.

SLE/PPM Merger Takes a Turn in a New Direction. Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

     Company mergers whether in our real world or in a virtual one, can be complex with many choices to make. The decision makers have to ask themselves some important questions to ensure working or merging with another business or entity is the right thing to do. Is the reputation of the company in good standing with the public? Do both parties have a common goal and can commit to the job requirements, its employees and the community. Some projects, partnership and mergers work, others fall through and new plans are implemented to ensure productivity and positive growth. That is the ultimate goal.

On May 14, 2012 The SL Enquirer announced a merger between Press Pass media; a neutral media network consisting of over 31 media sources and The SL Enquirer; Second Life’s longest running independently owned newspaper. Due to feedback from our members, we are making some small but important modifications to the plans.
