I met Ebbe Linden!

Friday Find: A Petrovsky Flux

There has been a lot of buzz about this sim recently all over twitter and some travel blogs that I felt compelled to go see it myself. I first heard about it through Ziki Questi when she blogged about how it may eventually disappear. So I made a note to possibly visit it soon. Soon came earlier than I thought it would when I noticed the new CEO of Linden Lab tweet that he was currently at the sim. Then of course I couldn’t resist stalking him.

Once I plurked that I was heading there, a few plurkers followed and soon we had a crowd. He came and actually chatted with us for a bit. It’s nice to see him actually exploring the grid and chatting with the residents.

It was also interesting to see his avatar, which wasn’t completely newbie and almost kind of looked like the RL Ebbe.

I think if you have some time, you should definitely visit this sim. Not sure how much longer it will be up there, but it’s a fantastic build. The concept is so magical and mind-blowing. I saw things destruct and fall apart in front of my own eyes and then I was pushed around by a floating sofa. It’s definitely an interesting visit.

I met Ebbe Linden!

Weekly Roundup

  1. Botgirl’s Blog – Avatars Swoon as Linden Lab CEO Visits Virtual World – Botgirl made a little parody post referring to the way a bunch of us that saw the CEO inworld reacted on twitter. We were kind of like fangirling schoolgirls, sharing pictures and such. The best part about this parody is that I’m in it (kind of)! So it’s a must read. Botgirl didn’t quite undertstand why we all behaved that way, I don’t either to be honest. I guess for me, it was more excitement that I’ll finally be able to get a picture of him for a meme…which I did! LOL! So yeah, perhaps there WILL be an Ebbe meme in the very near future, I just need to figure out all the details.
  2. 26 day inventory alphabet challenge – For those into daily blog challenges, Vanessa Blayblock is running the alphabet challenge for the month of April. It started on the 1st but you can join in at any time. I might try and do a few if I remember. You can read that post for more info and also check out the daily videos she has been posting.
  3. The Drax Files: World Makers [ Episode 18: Paradise Lost] – This month Drax Files video series comes back with episode 18 and a focus on Paradise Lost, the performance by the Basilique.
  4. The Drax Files Radio Hour – Of course the Drax Files podcast is released every Friday and I try to link to it every week so you guys are aware. It’s one of my favorite podcasts as Drax and Jo cover a lot of information about virtual reality and all the news surrounding it. Last week they talked more in-depth about Oculus Rift and this week they focused on Second Life TOS. I learn a great deal from these podcasts, I hope you guys give them a listen!
  5. I was discussing my greatest fear in life on twitter earlier, what’s your greatest fear?

  1. I think the fan effect is about how some people have influence in a milieu, and then it’s exciting to meet them. Second Life is interesting re: this because it’s so much easier to become friends with someone, then find out they’re important – or vice versa, get to know someone because they’re influential, but have it be more of a two way street where you might become friends.

    I’ve watched this happen with store owners, with whom I had a variety of relationships from complete strangers to friends before I knew, and I’ve been the target myself a couple of times due to chattiness and location relative to said store owners. To Be Known by someone important is or can be an ego boost.

  2. Berry, please take (and keep) a screenshot of the comments on your SL feed post where you announced this blog post. I believe it will be useful.

    Strawberry, now you know how it felt for me at least when I was able to meet you…lol. I tried to appear cool & collected on the outside but was doing the whole screaming schoolgirl in RL lol. :)

  4. Giselle Avro says:

    I have to point out the irony of Ebbe Lindens RL last name. Anyone else notice it is Altberg?? The Alt gave me a giggle.

  5. aww, TY for the mention! The Avatar Alphabet Game (or “SLesame Street” as Thelma calls it) has been fun.

    And thanks for TPing me over to the Ebbe fest. It was my first CEO Photobomb ever! :D

  7. Oh…and I missed it!
    I think Ebbe Linden and his RL avatar are very interesting and I’m glad they’re here. He seems truly engaged and interested in what’s going on in SL – and in the dreams of the people who are making it all happen. He’s an idea person who takes those all-too-often neglected next steps to test out the vision, and I get the feeling that he is always mining for inspiration. THAT makes him fan-worthy in my book.
    Meeting Ebbe in-world would be a treat, no doubt, and since it wasn’t me this time, I’m ever-so-glad it was you! Yaya!

  8. I am so looking forward to an Ebbe meme! *giggles like a maniac*

  9. I love this post Berry, and I love that you got a chance to meet Ebbe! I saw that he was on the sim, and I was too shy to stop by! Maybe next time I’ll be a bit more brave :) I like the pic of him surrounded by all the ladies! Too funny! <3

  10. Heeey, Ebbe’s avi is kinda hot. (Don’t worry, Mr Boss Man, I got a boyfriend already :p )

    I like the sound of the 26-day challenge. Can’t wait for ‘F’ because undoubtedly I’d be able to drag out my very first freenis for that one XD

    As to my biggest fear, that would be losing my job. Among many other things, SL would have to go out of the window. Well, I could set Skell as a freebie avatar, but you’ve seen the kind of freebies available for male avatars, yes? *shudder* Yeah.

  11. […] reading Strawberry Singh’s blog post on how she met Ebbe Linden, I was determined to go to the SIM she met him in. I like solitude, so even the thought of meeting […]

  12. […] 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 […]

  13. Thanks everyone for taking the time to share your thoughts. I got to meet Ebbe again, and this time his avatar was completely changed so of course I took many pics and now there is an Ebbe meme this week, lol! Hope you guys can participate:

  14. […] I started doing pictures in a black background but after editing on PS I wasn’t much convinced with the result, so I remembered Strawberry Singh did a blog post about the Spencer Art Museaum which is holding an exhibition of A Petruvsky Flux, so I went there and after wait to reconstruct I took the shot. It’s an amazing place that is so worth visiting.  You can find her blog post here. […]
