One of my favourite dip-in books is Douglas Adams’ and John Lloyd’s ‘The Meaning of Liff’. This wonderful little book puts UK place names to work describing things which currently have no word for them in the English language. Examples of this include ‘Ible,’ defined as ‘clever but lazy’ and ‘Scramoge,’ defined as ‘to cut oneself whilst licking envelopes’.
It occurs to me that, as virtual world living appears set to become a more mainstream phenomena, it’s perhaps time we started defining some of the more familiar metaverse experiences so that future generations can benefit from an established lexicon when struggling to come to terms with life in prims and pixels. After all, what point is there in being a pioneer if you don’t pass forward all this learning in some way? It’s a process I in fact already started several years ago when – as no doubt you are…
As the new year approaches, I am looking ahead and settings goals for 2015.
I have several opportunities that have come my way and I hope to take advantage of all them.
One of the things I’ve decided to do is start a Look Of The Day post. Just a quick shot of me wearing an outfit I put together (this is mainly to give me a reason to sort through my inventory). I will title them all LOTD, so if you’re not interested in them, feel free to skip right over those posts.
If you like it, great, if you don’t (or I don’t) then I can toss the items and voilá – less inventory!
I picked up a LOT of stuff over the advent season, so I need to go through and see what I actually have.
And Devy sent me a link to a new shoe store, so now I need more room for shoes!
What new things are you hoping to accomplish in 2015?
