GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 19th November at noon SLT: The Day of 8 billion!


Last week our species reached 8 billion people.  Let’s celebrate humanity today, we clearly won the genetic lottery.  8 billion and all of them better fed and in better health than they have ever been.  And maybe we are a boon to the planet as well.  An intelligent species managing the world ecosystem! We have fought against the harsh conditions of life and against our own violent, malicious nature and we have won.

Where do we go from here?  Do you think the population should and will decline to some ideal population number?  What is the ideal population for Earth?  Can we know without knowing all the inventions and discoveries of the future?  Or should we increase in numbers to fill the whole universe?

When will we reach 100 billion? Join us in GeekSpeak on Saturday at noon SLT to discuss the future of our species.  Bring all your family!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.

GeekSpeak – is our species facing extinction in this century? Join the discussion Saturday June 22nd at 12pm SLT

Recently a report came out that stated that we will be extinct in 2050.  Could that really happen?  What threatens us?  The death of insects, climate change, nuclear war, new diseases?  What other threats can you think of? 

Do you worry about extinction?  Or do you think we can correct every problem, bring back the insects, put the carbon back in the ground? 

There are 7 billion of us.  Are we really in danger of extinction?  Are all forms of life on earth in danger, even the most numerous?  Will we all die out together?  Which species will go extinct first, mice or men?  Come and talk about extinction at GeekSpeak.  Bring a mouse, we need its opinion too.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have any suggestions for future subjects.

Going Furry in Second Life – Stareyes Galaxy Reporting

Among human avatars in Second Life ©, there roam creatures that have a varying degree of features that refer to other, usually mammalian species. 

These range from some having “neko” ears and tails to those decked to full “furry” animal avatars. Whereas these creatures express a great amount of creativity in their appearance and demeanor, they are quite often shunned in clubs and entertainment venues. What is so offensive and deprecating in furries that makes sim owners ban them? What is it that makes furries tick? Stareyes Galaxy donned her cow fursona and went out to find out more about the furry lifestyle.

Despite having had my cow avatar for several years, I had not really been privy to the lifestyle of furries, and often was wondering why on earth one would want to go traipsing about the meadows of SL as a plump but admittedly very sexy bovine character. I contacted the “Furry Dating” group, with over 700 members, to get the first leads. After having been solicited to “yiff” a few times, I was eventually directed to the USF sim (United Space Force Nation) where I found Kiara and Charlie to set me right. USF is one of the largest furry communities in Second Life, and they host an annual AGRA (Anti-Gravity Racing Association) race as well as other competitions.
