Flat Ebbe Linden Meme

Flat Ebbe Linden Meme

After I did my Flat Rodvik meme last year, I knew as soon as I heard that Linden Lab has a new CEO that I was eventually going to do a meme about him. I did make a Flat Ebbe this time as well, but I didn’t take him around the grid on a date. I just took him to one of my favorite sims at the moment and then I thought I’d add a little bit of a twist to the meme from last time.

Meme instructions: Pick up a copy of Flat Ebbe Linden from my marketplace store for free and take him to one of your favorite places on the grid. Also, share at least three things that you’d like to tell Ebbe. Please remember to leave a link to your post in the comments and share your Flat Ebbe picture in the Blog memes flickr group.

I took Ebbe to my friend Denise Rowlands‘ sim called DeRailed. I have blogged DeRailed before. It’s one of my favorite places at the moment and I love that she changes it with each season.

My comments for Ebbe:

  1. Please hire a PR person/team to find a way to repair Second Life’s reputation. Then perhaps we won’t have the Huffington Post calling Second Life a “virtual sex world.”
  2. I love that you are interacting with residents on Twitter so frequently. Thank you for doing that. It makes us feel that you are actually listening and we have a direct way to reach you if we need.
  3. Please fix the Second Life TOS soon. I know you are working on it and it was very reassuring to hear you discuss it on Friday at the conference. I hope whatever changes you have planned are implemented quickly so it brings some relief to those content creators that are concerned about it.

I know there are a lot more issues going on in SL that I can talk about, but I think I’ll leave it at that. The first issue is what affects me and concerns me the most and is probably the main reason more people in my real life don’t know about my second life.

I didn’t get a chance to do my Friday Find last week because I went to the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education conference. Ebbe Altberg was one of the speakers and he was in front of a packed sim at 1pm SLT. I of course took many pictures, all of which I’ve uploaded to my drive here, in case you guys would like to see them. I added a few images of when I ran into him at a sim before that as well. I think I’ll just keep dumping all the images I take of him as I stalk see him across the grid. You guys are free to use them if you like.

His speech on Friday was very comforting to hear. He seems to be saying all the right things and seems to have great plans for the future concerning the Second Life TOS amongst a lot of other things. If you’d like to see his full speech, it can be viewed on youtube at this link. Inara Pey has also done a full transcript of it on her blog. It’s very thorough and informative so I suggest you guys definitely take a look.

On Friday I had shared a snapshot of Ebbe’s current avatar on twitter

and when asked if that’s what his current avatar looked like, he responded with this:

 

which was quite a surprise to me! Not sure if you guys had heard about this before. There was speculation on plurk if this would replace the current avatars but luckily Cara Ametza, a beta tester, came in and stated that these would not be a replacement, but just additional avatars people can choose from.

It’s so refreshing to see a lot of these changes coming around. It makes me wonder what else is in store and what else we can look forward to. How do you guys feel about the changes? I hope you have some things you’d like to share with Ebbe as well. I also hope you can show him around the grid a bit.

Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes/challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years.

The Spring Season Challenge

(click here for raw shot) Tomorrow is April 1st and this month always reminds me of spring; probably because of the old saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” I thought this week would be perfect to do a spring challenge.

I need some TLC

Second Life Book Cover Meme

I have been pretty busy with RL stuff so I wasn’t able to blog my Friday Find last week, but will continue it this week. You can blame this meme on Bear Silvershade and Botgirl Questi.

The Sexual Meme

It was around this time last year that I blogged my first Monday Meme. On March 11, 2013 I asked you guys to share 7 sl facts with me. It was just a goofy idea I got after reading one of Tymmerie’s plurks that day. Never did I imagine I would continue to do these […] Continue reading →

Every year on March 8th women (and men) celebrate women’s economic, political, and social achievements and encourage respect, appreciation and love towards women worldwide. This day is about empowering and celebrating women. Days like these always make me wonder and I start all these comparisons between myself and women that […] Continue reading →

The Book Meme

(click here to see raw shot, I actually prefer it) Usually when I’m feeling down, the first thing I tend to grab is some chocolate and a favorite book that I’ll sit and read to distract myself and get my mind off things. I’ve been doing that a lot lately and figured a book meme […] Continue reading →

This is not the typical Friday Find that I usually do every week where I share an image of a location with you, but I will share a couple of locations/slurls that may be of interest. I took the first image at Illusions Arabian Marketplace. It’s a very pretty build with bold textures and I’ve […] Continue reading →
