Inworld Linden meeting


Inworld Linden meeting
Originally uploaded by Torley.

The Lindens are the inhabitants of the lab that runs Second Life, or more accurately the Second Life Grid. They are seem here at a large inworld meeting today discussing the future of its development just as they have opened a public discussion of the direction of its architecture. Torley Linden took the snap.

Today also came this quote.

"Lovers conversing at a great distance will behold each other as in the flesh. Doctors will examine patients' tongues in another city and the poor will enjoy visual trips wherever their fancy inclines."

This is not about Second Life, this is about what would later become known as fax - transmitting images via wires. From the NY Times, February 24, 1907
