We learned today that Delinda Dyrssen, a member of the Treet family, passed away last night.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Delinda's family who have had a year of tragedies. Our thoughts are with you as we all struggle to come to grips with this loss.

Delinda has been part of the Treet TV family in a variety of ways since day one. She was a sailor, a music lover and always a good friend. Always happy. Always cheerful. Words can not convey how much we will miss her.

There are plans for a memorial in progress. For those interested, there is a Second Life group "Delinda Dyrssen Memorial" started to plan a tribute to her memory. Her family has requested donations in Delinda's name (Denise Williams in RL) be made to:
KDIGO at http://kdigo.org/ or
Project 50/50 at http://www.shaykelley.com/


Delinda was the brightest star in the universe had a smile and a laugh for everyone and will truly be missed. I am struggling with words at the moment.

Rest in Peace DD I love you.

- Angie Mornington



((((Hugs)))))  we will miss DD together, my dear.... and keep laughing with her,  as she would like that. 
An extraordinary woman, an exceptional friend,  loved by all she touched... 
Sail on,  DD.... fair winds always....
Blessed be & love,
- Yxes



Delinda was one of those persons that always made me smile when I saw her name pop up in an IM. I always knew I was in for a pleasant conversation.

Before Delinda's Treet TV days she was very active in the SL sailing community and wrote The "Sea Stories" column at SLSailing.COM.
Her passing leaves a real world hole in my real world heart.
God Bless you Delinda.

- MarkTwain White



This can't be true... My heart is broken I can't comprehend this. Please tell me it isn't true

- Paisley Beebe



Delinda was one of those few who made the world a little brighter. She was always there to lend a hand and liven the room. Her laughter, smile, and spirit will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone at was blessed enough to know her

So, I did the walks, picked up what I needed, and headed back... when my phone dropped out of Zorch's album and went fucking nuts.

Emails, tweets, facebooks, plurks, texts all at once.

No. Dammit.
This is not how it's supposed to be.

I sat down by the side of the road, put the bags down, and read...
And could not stop crying.

- Crap Mariner


Like so many others I am heartbroken by the loss of such an amazing woman. The pain, wait and no complaint. The stories of her brother and her taking this unusual trip.

We have all lost a sister and I just hope she's there the day I travel to thirdlife.

- Lauren Weyland



Our family has lost a wonderful member with a deep and giving heart.  We will remember Delinda and know that friendship and community is very important.

Requiem en Pax
Dearest Delinda

You will be missed

Paisley and I a number of us were at the pocket last night in a vigil .. she was supposed to be here in my home this next weekend ... Paisley went to bed so hopeful .. she was waking up .. the doctors were so encouraged ... she kept everyone informed .... Delinda was a wonderful friend.

- Bliss Windlow



I don’t even know what to say.  I just found out about this, and I’m honestly too upset to write.  Delinda and I have been friends for years.  I wish to God this were not true.  It feels like some sort of a nightmare. 

I love you, Deli.  I hope you know how much.  I’m not sure a kinder heart existed, and the world is a damn sad place without you in it.  I know you are in heaven now.  I will miss you so much.

- AutumnFoxx Sutherland



This is such sad news to hear.  Delinda was a powerful force for good and good things in so many ways.

- Saffia Widdershins



I am truly sad to hear this. Delinda will always be in my thoughts and she will always have my deep appreciation. She is truly special.

- Benton Wunderlich



Rest in peace, Delinda.

A triute to Delinda

Her writings for slsailing.com (Sea stories, being stories that was told to a lovely bar lass): http://slsailing.com/2010/11/sea-stories-with-delinda-dyrssen/

It's the 100th episode of the show about design and designers in virtual worlds. A huge accomplishment from the Prim Perfect team and their fearless leader Saffia Widdershins. Three cheers all around.

The show that started out as a better home & garden makeover feature has grown into a richer lifestyle magazine for designers & builders of 3D immersive environs.

The avatar faces you see in front of the camera do not reveal the tremendous amount of energy and countless hours it takes to produce a weekly show. Congratulations to the entire Designing Worlds team and here's to 100 more!

Today's Tonight Live included a segment about Emerald, the very popular third party viewer for Second Life. Following is the audio-only version of Paisley's interview with Jessica Lyon and Arabella Steadham of the Emerald team.


UPDATE: Full video version of show is available now at Tonight Live section of this site.

Live N Kickin director and SL music maven Delinda Dyrssen will be away from the show for a little while to spend some time with her family. We'll keep you posted about upcoming shows, but in the meantime we send Delinda and her family all our love.

Time Away

Hi Everyone.. yes as Texas mentioned above I will be away off and on due to family concerns for a bit however im working hard now to make sure that Live n Kickin continues even while Im away. I do plan to do 2 shows July 13 and 20 before the Treet TV SLCC break but Live n Kickin will be back on again after that and I hope to take part in as many episodes as possible.

Shakespeare continues to inspire creative storytelling and sparks the imagination no matter where the stage. One of the more interesting presentations during the 2010 Best Practices in Education conference was one given by Joff Chafer on Virtual Performance.

After explaining some of his own theater projects, he was joined by the Second Life theater troupe to demonstrate how they go about staging their version of The Tempest to live audiences. Taking on the challenges and limitations of the environment - while exploiting the benefits - the intrepid players appear to also be enjoying the creative process of bringing new 'virtual' life to the classic.

Metanomics celebrated its 100th episode this week with a gala party in Second Life held at JenzZa Misfit's Muse Isle. The entertainment was provided by multi-talented Metanomics host Robert Bloomfield along with a local Ithica NY jazz band, affectionately called The Reztones.

The "Metanomics Thank You Blues" is a fun shout out to all the people that have made Metanomics the big hit it is today, from its start in 2007. The song is blues only in style, not in sentiment! It's been a great ride for Treet TV as well. Congratulations to Robert Bloomfield and ALL the crew, volunteers and participants - past & present - that have made Metanomics a success.


If you listen to the song, you will quickly realize that there is an entire team of folks behind the scenes pulling it together each week. This is true for every show on Treet TV. Some shows have already passed the 100 episode mark, and others are approaching the milestone - but over the years Treet has worked with hundreds of dedicated people working together to make shows that inform and entertain.

We are fortunate and proud to have the opportunity to work with all of them. Hats off to Metanomics and all the Treet TV family of shows!

PS. The Reztones are:

  • Al Hartland, Drums
  • Brian Earle, Clarinet
  • Doug Robinson, Bass
  • Chad Lieberman, Piano
  • Beyers Sellers, Vocals
