Happy Eid!

Happy Eid

Eid al-Fitr has arrived and it’s been a wonderfully spiritual month of Ramadan for me. Ramadan is one of my most favorite months of the year. It’s a time my family really comes together. We wake up before sunrise and eat together then open our fasts together after sunset. We read the Quran together, we pray together, we give each other support. It’s a time I cherish dearly. After the month is over, we have Eid. Eid is like Christmas to us. We spend the day together, sharing gifts, meeting relatives, eating lots of sweet treats and it’s something I always look forward to. I may not be the best muslim, but these are the times that bring me back to my roots and my spirituality. For those of you celebrating Eid, I wish you lots of happiness with your loved ones today. I hope this coming year will be a more peaceful one for everyone and there is less human suffering all over the world.

I’ve been so busy this past month that I never got the chance to visit the community celebrations this past June for Second Life’s 12th birthday. I’ve been trying to keep up with them by reading all the blogs. Of course the lovely Ms. Inara Pey and the evil Mr. Ciaran Laval have done a wonderful job covering it. You may not think Mr. Laval is evil, but trust me on this, he’s totally evil.

During the birthday celebrations, the CEO of Linden Lab, Ebbe Altberg, was interviewed by Saffia Widdershins and Jo Yardley. The interview ended with some audience Q&A, but there wasn’t time to get to all of the audience questions so the Lindens have started a thread on the community forums called Ask the CEO where residents are invited to ask any questions they may have and both the CEO and other Lindens will try and answer them. So far the thread has been going very well and has been quite informative, especially if you are interested in the new virtual world that Linden Lab is working on (Project Sansar). Mr. Laval has done a summary post of what we’ve learned so far from the Q&A if you’d like to catch up.

It’s great to see not only the Lindens but the CEO interacting with the residents this way and providing as much information as possible. I hope this thread stays active for a while and they think of more ideas like this to reach out and interact with the community.
