Today a positive article about Second Life was featured in PCGamer Magazine. A big thank you to Steven Messner and PCGamer for taking the time to interview me and shed a positive light on Second Life.
These days Linden Lab and Second Life seem to be getting better press and it’s definitely a welcome change. When Steven first approached me a couple of weeks ago and asked if he could interview me, I was excited but also a bit apprehensive and scared. He requested we speak on Skype, which made me even more nervous because I didn’t want to ramble or say something without thinking. But it turned out to be a wonderful experience and I am very thankful that I did it. It was also very surreal to see one of my Second Life images on the front page of PCGamer.
Steven happened to have found one of my Second Life unboxing videos on youtube by chance and got intrigued. He’s written a wonderful piece about the Second Life fashion industry and has been incredibly kind and respectful in his comments about my videos and other work. I sincerely appreciate it. I hope you click over to have a read and share the article on your social media.
My favorite part of the whole article was the last paragraph where Steven shared so eloquently just how well the Second Life community works together and celebrates each other. I loved his words so I’ll share them here:
My conversation with Berry has given me a rare glimpse into a world that is often negatively branded as bizarre. If you dig a little deeper, you’ll find a community of artists and creators who have banded together to share and celebrate each other. It’s not something you see in other massively multiplayer games, but it’s something I wish there is more of. It makes me a bit sad, then, that Second Life will always be labelled by its strip joints and sex clubs. As Berry tells me, “That’s just not what Second Life is about, there’s so much more you can do here.”
Steven has also told me that he is interested in writing more about Second Life in the near future so I highly encourage all of you to follow him on Twitter, send him thanks for the positive article and encourage him to do more of the same when he has time.
