As the SLCC approaches, several announcements have been made about the SLCC. The first answers some growing concerns about what behavior or what people are to expect from the SLCC, a SLCC Community Standards Agreement outlines what is to be expected while being at the SLCC (which is fun and respect! These aren’t the forums people!) My co-tract leader of the Social Tract shot out a call list for the tract SL and the media, definitely check it out and see if you fit the bill! Third has been an announcement for those wishing to cover the SLCC from a press or journalistic angle. There have been many requests for the Future United, Inc. from the media, and this Journalistic Credentials and announcement is a great resource to understand what the press has resources to from the Future United, Inc. Two months until the SLCC happens, and things are just ramping up! Continue reading

In about 18 Days, Internet Radio will die because of the new Internet Royalty Rates that were decided by the Copyright Review Board (see Broadcast Law Blogs very good coverage here: here).
This not only effects radio stations, but also DJ’s, Second Life Club owners, and anyone who listens to music online. The new proposed fees will turn off a lot of radio stations (and have already shut down a few), and aggregation services such as Loudcity.
I would ask that anyone who cares about Internet Radio, please look at the Save Net Radio campaign, sign a petition, and support legislation that makes these royalty fees fair for broadcasters to continue to operate online. Continue reading
For the past year I’ve been working on a wiki that describes how to DJ Online. As each month passes small steps small steps are made with the Wiki, something gets edited, a screen shot is updated, things are investigated … Continue reading

Silent Sparrow is having her fashion show on ASpiRE! Isle 6/23/07 at 4pm in honor of the grand opening of her new sim Silent Sparrow (where there will be an afterparty afterwards).

You can even check me out wearing one of her mens items while DJing this event. Continue reading

Nethermind has posted on the SLCC Blog that Flaming Moe, one of the well known live musicians in Second Life, has taken an opportunity to play saxophone on an European cruse ship for the next six months (way to go Moe!) Moe is a very talented Saxophonist and I was really interested in hearing the collaboration between him and DJ Doubledown during the Masquerade on Saturday night. It is a loss not to have Flaming Moe at the Second Life Community Convention this year, I’m really happy for any person that is able to get a great opportunity musically! Continue reading
