Hello and welcome to The Alternate Monkey Universe. I get to be the one to break the site and you in. So I figured I’d discuss what you might see from me in the future. I have a great interest in the technology used in the world of Second Life and sometimes out.

    I like the scripting part of Second Life. There’s a lot of predefined functions that do a wide variety of actions and with the resident’s ingenuity there’s almost nothing that can’t be created. Along with scripting there’s building. Building is another creative outlet that the residents of Second Life do that amazes me. I’m just taken back by the details that builders build into their objects. When scripting and building are combined they come to make a very interesting object. When the objects are all put together on a sim it brings me to one of my other interests traveling to sims and taking in their wonderful creations.

    I’m so impressed by the work put into places that reside on sims or the whole sim themselves. I’ve gone to places that were full of beautiful built structures, but most residents don’t even see these sims and it’s a shame to be able to witness all the work that has gone into these areas and then it goes unnoticed by the majority. This is another part of Second Life I’d like to bring to you: these places that might have gone unnoticed.

    Let me not forget about making clothing, skins, tattoos, animations, and more. These also are great feats of creation. The making of these are usually done outside the meta-verse on third party software. There’s a lot of open source third party software out on the web to work with and at times I’ll try to point them out.

    Now that you have an idea what i’ll bring to the table I hope you will come back time to time to see new posts or maybe subscribe to the feed. Hopefully my perspective on Second Life will not be the only one posted here. The editor is looking for people who have a love for Second Life and are interested in writing stories. If you are one of those people and have interesting ideas and or like to tell stories: drop in the comments your interest in getting involved and a way to contact you and the editor will get back to you.
