2P60 Response: Second Life P2

Now, to really get into it. Well not really. This time is about education in Second Life. Now I personally don't believe that it can work out for the masses. It would be great. I mean I would like it. It would enable people to take education into their own hands. The problem is that some people might not be able to access it, or understand how to get to it. I believe education in second life, like education online comes at the price of a less structured few since the Internet is around. There's just no way to make sure people aren't cheating. And that brings up the question that is it really cheating to look something u online if it is an online course? I believe online learning in second life or anywhere else should be by choice. I personally go online when I want to learn something, but that's in my spare time. Second Life education is an interesting but without a structure and that people can understand it, it can't work out.

2P60 Response: Second Life

So, I personally have been on second life. I have an account and everything. Even starting to build stuff. I don't know where I am in it but I am there. I got a second life account to at least try it, and in case I would ever have to use it for this class or something else. I really don't understand it, the whole controversy. I love the website http://www.getafirstlife.com/ just because it so funny comparing second life to reality. I believe people can indeed figure out the difference of when do stop. Since there are limitations to what you can do. I mean once we get the VR of whatever you what whenever, the there would be real problems. Also about the porn part. I think pornography is part reality and thus VR. If people can make it in VR it will be there, whether right or wrong. There’s not much you can do without infringing on their rights. I mean the internet it pretty much all porn anyway, why odes it matter is there porn in second life. Yes I understand that they are doing some controversial things but unless we accept second life as its own separate reality, then add rules then you can do something. But if that happens what’s the point of going on if it’s the same as FL. So there’s my opinion on Second Life, in it my name is Cory Amaterasu (I think) and I'll see you there.

PS: Maybe you can give me feedback on my Tardis :)

2P60 Response: Blogging and Microblogging (Twitter)

Well on the first day I thought I signed up for this presentation but I actually didn't so I got a twitter account for nothing. Every time I go look at it it makes me sad because no one is following me. I continue to think maybe if I put up something exciting like "Running from the undead" or "Hiking in the rainforest" someone would care. Then again I wouldn't want to lie online. That just plain wrong.

"Another way to die!!"
Sorry I’m listening to the new bond song.

I have nothing against blogging. I would do it but once again the same thing with my twitter account, no one would be interested. I admire people who blog and can put that all out there. I mean I wish I had that much to talk about. Not that i don't, I have plenty but sometimes I just need to be on a roll and when I'm typing online that usually doesn't happen. It usually happens in my head when I'm walking somewhere. I'm hilarious in my own head/interesting. I know I am writing why I don't blog on my blog but I really don't update at all so I don't really call it blogging.
