Michael Stackpole, The Future Of Books in The Digital Age

Michael Stackpole is an Award winning Fantasy Science Fiction Author
He is best known for his work in FASA’s BattleTech® universe and for his Star Wars® X-wing comics and bestselling Star Wars® novels. In Second Life he is known as Noble Charron, he holds weekly meetings in Second Life to discuss writing and publishing. Michael is a strong proponent of Digital Books. And as a leading author who is very much part of the digital age of publishing, I was very interested in finding out what the future of Books will look like. With bookshops closing down all over, or morphing into hip coffee shops, will books go the way of the scroll? Will books become more interactive? What about self publishing? is it like the music industry where having an “Album” out is no longer seens as a badge of honor…because anyone can do that these days?

Collaboration Online Where Is It Leading Us?
Collaboration Tools are generally computer applications that make it possible for people to work together and play together.
Richard Meiklejohn has developed a software called Roobaarb for collaboration, he is very invested in virtual worlds, and has strong opinions on collaboration and where its taking us. This week we will be talking to Richard about his software and what he sees as the future of collaboration online, after all its what we are all doing on Second Life isn’t it?

This weeks show we interview some residents from InWorldz. Jim Tarber and Lady Skia both now call InWorldz their home. InWorldz is one of the most successfull Open Sim Virtual Worlds. And as you can see from the picture above, the content in InWorldz is really catching up to Second Life. Both Jim and Lady were Second Life residents, and we find out what they are doing in InWorldz what they love about it, and how the community in InWorldz is growing, and welcoming more and more new residents. InWorldz has over 35,000.00 sign ups now. What makes this Open Sim so popular and how is it progressing since our last interview?

Tempest Ella was scheduled to appear, but unfortunately due to her situation in Christchurch New Zealand with the recent earth quake destroying her house, she was unable to be online for the show. We were disappointed not to have been able to contact her, and wish her and her family well in this time of great loss and distress. The sim she owns has been raising money for her and her family. And you can go to donate to it. Here:

This Sunday 6th March 6pm on Tonight Live With Paisley Beebe

The Interview you have all been waiting for!

GreenZone Speaks UP About RedZone

Exclusive Interview this Sunday!

GreenZoneGreenZoneThis Sunday I’ll be interviewing Azure Twine who is the english speaking representative from the GreenZone Team who created a HUD detection device to warn wearers about the security device RedZone, called GreenZone.

The security device RedZone developed by Second Life resident zFire Xue has been in the news these last few weeks because awareness of its privacy violation concerns has reached a zenith, particularly in the S.L Jira started by SmoothKitty Beverly on the 7th Feb 2011 (with 1622 votes at time of press) and on various blogs and message boards like SLUniverse (329 pages at last count!). However concern about RedZone goes right back to middle of last year on the Jira.

RedZone is a security device which tracks and stores I.P addresses of Avatars it scans when you land at the parcel where it is rezzed, it also lists, for the owner of the device, all alts associated with your I.P address, IF when scanned you have a Second Life browser media button active at the time, it then has the ability to show its owner ALL the Alts associated with that I.P address, whether you are at Starbucks or at home…. There is also a RedZone HUD which can also scan people without their consent anywhere on the grid, and show up ALL their associated alts also. There has been an absolute furor on the Second Life Jira over this, that it reached the No 2 spot on the status list, with a huge amount of posts…(keep scrolling…keep scrolling….)

1000 Avatar Project, Bara Jonson and HBO Director, and Enoch Mildor1000 Avatar Project, Bara Jonson and HBO Director, and Enoch MildorSunday February 6th 2011 6pm slt Tonight Live With Paisley Beebe
This week on Tonight Live With Paisley Beebe, not only do we feature the HBO Director and one of the subjects of the Documentary "When Strangers Click" See prev Blog post announcement, we have Gracie Kendel creator of the 1000 Avatar Project, and our Resident Spotlight this week Enoch Mildor from the True Blood Royal Ballroom Club.

Gracie KendalGracie KendalGracie Kendal has been on Tonight Live previously to talk about her Art in real life, (Watch HERE)  and how she brought it over to Second Life. Since our last interview Gracie has been working inworld on 2 other projects, her My Life As An Avatar Project, and lately on her 1000 Avatar Project.

KRISTINE SCHOMAKER: also know as Gracie Kendal, is a Los Angeles based new media and performance artist, painter and art historian. She received her BA in Art History and her MA in Studio Art from California State University at Northridge. For over 12 years, she has been experimenting with various interdisciplinary art forms including using online virtual worlds and social networking technologies to connect with international audiences and local arts communities. Kristine's current work explores notions of online identity, specifically the construction of Avatars. Her work as a whole stands as an allegory of the relationship between appearance and identity, illusion, belief and reality. Two projects she is presently working on include, "My Life as an Avatar: The Gracie Kendal project" and "1000 Avatars" a contemporary anthropology of portraits of avatars in the virtual world of Second Life. Gracie has also written a thesis on online identity

Gracie has been inundated with Avatars wanting their photo included in this project, so much so that after initially going for 100 Avatars she has now decided to go over the 1000 Avatars...what has she learned about Avatars and herself during this process? what can we learn, what surprised her? and what delighted her. Are you part of this project? come along and be filmed in our audience.

On February 14th 2011, HBO will air a documentary film called “When Strangers Click” directed by Academy Award Nominee Robert Kenner (whose past work includes “Food, Inc.“). The film is about people who have met people they love online, and one segment features a wonderful story from Second Life: a Swedish musician who performs inworld and not only secured a record deal through a connection made in Second Life, but also met a woman (in the US), whom he fell in love with – now the two have a son together.

    How do you pick guests to be on Tonight Live? If I know someone that has an interesting Second Life story to tell who should they contact from the show?


    Great Start Texas :) To get an opportunity to appear on Tonight Live please send a notecard or press release to my P.A Bliss Windlow in SL in notecard form or via email at Outline what the subject is why we should have them on, and a website link if there is one. We book our shows about 6 weeks out, will occasionally rearrange our schedule if there is something important that we must highlight, so give us plenty of time if the subject of the story is tied to a date. We have had a large amount of our guests from press releases or just a simple lead to a great story this way. I also follow twitter leads, facebook leads, and I read and follow a lot of blogs also. We are definitely open to all stories. We choose stories on suitability to our show, timelines, and interest to our viewers. If you are trying to sell something...probably best to ask for sponsorship we are also very interested in that!
    regards Paisley
