tonights "pbs- "american experience" was a recap of the TRIANGLE SHIRT WAIST FIRE -1910.

commerce is community..but mechanized, and dehumanized it can become the medium- consumerism. maybe there is another word...? but creative commerce alone cant stand--like a 2 legged stool.;)

early jaron lanier hippie dippy vr writing was all about his dream for human scale virtuality expressed.... of course without hard work towards that end- all we got was technolgy scale vr...

it's consuming us.

botgirl smells of hamlet.

You know, that's odd, Ann. I think Botqirl is just some IT guy who I think people have met in RL, no? I mean, he's somebody who is known *not* to be Hamlet. I may be hallucinating that, however, as I don't see it written on his blog.

My gut is that he is NOT Hamlet. You know why? Hamlet is a fairly lazy journalist. He will not go out and write copy for free. He's not the type to muse off-hours for free on a blog. He's someone who produces as little as he has to just to keep his column barely warm.

So I can't imagine him going to the trouble of creating and maintaining and writing about Botqirl, unless that was somehow some company's plan, to pay him for doing that -- and I find that really hard to believe.

So -- hmm.

ah because it must be a dread HBGary conspiracy! j/k

yea you are right. the only place you find hamlet has a ridiculous number of page view ads.

I sincerely hope that Rodvik Linden not only reads your notecard letter, but actually *gets* it.

Living in this house in Mill on prosperity than those who work in factories or dissolution of a small tack Ticky unit property or apartment in one hand, never found prosperity.

It contributed to the credit crisis and housing market collapse and looming ecological crisis to contribute. But I think there is no consumption of the negative aspects of RL to play in the virtual world.
