Second Life Posing

More about everyone’s favorite online human zoo, Second Life: ‘Second Life’ faces threat to its virtual economy, via CNET. Seems some industrious open-source types have unwittingly (they claim) given everyone the keys to the kingdom. From the article, “Linden Lab, which publishes Second Life, posted a blog alerting residents of the virtual world to the existence of a program or bot called CopyBot, which allows someone to copy any object in Second Life. That includes goods such as clothing that people purchase for their in-world avatars …” heh, lol? Half the fun of gaming is having something the other guy doesn’t. And when everyone’s super, no one will be.

    It suprised me to know that Brad Bird himself did the voice for Edna. Didn’t see that one coming…

    […] Anyways, asides from the stupidity of this blog being present in there thereby completely discrediting the entire bloody thing, what I find interesting is how segregated the second life community is from the MMO blogsphere. I mean, we all talk, bitch, rant, complain about it all the goddamned fucking blasted wanking time but damned if any of us are going to link to it in our blogroll. Then again, none of us endorse second lifechild pornography, well, with the exception of lum none of us do, but he’s a dirty old man. […]
