Tarsha - Second Life (Music Video)

Some new exposure for our favourite virtual platform wuth this new music video for breakout rock group, TARSHA!

Produced by Aleisha Russell / Esprit Films. Edited By Chris Lowe / Suite 7 Productions, some doubt that the heavy metal style and visual aesthetic here will actually appeal to SL residents, but the lyrics are clear enough. One wonders why they didn't come up with a video that actually made some use of the virtual space though.

Another Perfect World - 30 minutes Preview

You Tube removed the full feature but here is a new preview version.

Another Perfect World is a documentary about digital utopias, about online worlds created as places for work, play, friendship and love.

People have always created utopias, worlds that reflect the greatest, most enlightened and noble ideas of the period in which they live. The utopias of the future will be created online, in digital worlds capable of rendering photo-realistic depictions of whatever the mind can imagine with technologies that allow people from around the world to join in. We now have the chance to build a new world from scratch.

If you were going to do so, on which principles would you establish it? What is more important: freedom of expression; an active marketplace to encourage social interaction; or laws to define the limits of social relations?
