You thought there was nothing with more power then the law?
In fact there is something, which is known by every good law expert, this thing is called a principle of law.
The easiest example to define what is a principle of law is about starvation.
One has the right to not let him/herself die. If you find yourself out of food and about to die, by principle of law, you can steal food and a court should consider that you did this to avoid your own death and you should not be punished.
I came to think about principle of laws because I think a lot about the notion of a “private copy”, that anyone should be able to get a private copy of any cultural item, considering the social circumstances surrounding culture nowadays.

-An oligarchist culture-

The music industry for instance. You can bring together all the majors , take their productions all together, the independant music labels are in fact the biggest music production platform worldwide. Still, people don’t get to hear about it, because the independant scene doesn’t have enough marketing budgets behind.
With a marketing budget you will advertise on youtube, on yahoo – I just came to think about google, it’s funny because they don’t advertise for anything on their homepage, and it’s Google, period – . So with a marketing budget you are going to buy ads on yahoo and then because you give them money they will find a reporter to write about you and say enthusiast things, this is an exchange, this is fake journalism. This also happens in your magazines that you think are so underground, independant record labels know about this, you got to pay your ad to get an article. FAKE JOURNALISM FAKE INFORMATION, on your TV, on your webpages, on your newspapers.

So yes, apparently if you follow all these links that are all making you end up on only 3 different artists, yes this gives the impression of a dying culture, really. Focusing on only a few cultural items will make people automaticaly starve for fresh and new things. Focus on diversity, think about biodiversity, our culture is like all other cultures, it is diverse. Don’t lie about this only because you fear people might not like this or that, people are open and want to access a very broad culture. Majors are not intelligent enough anymore but rich enough only to brainwash people with advertising, making them sick and starving for new things.


Fake journalism/information, brainwashing sessions on all media touching everyone with the same content all over the planet. You got people to be disgusted at first then you got them to starve.
It got to the point where they just needeed to grab culture without paying for it, because all of a sudden they realised they were surrounded by it, why would they let their brain die, why would they let themselves be brainwhashed to death?
Our system has created a way to make people suffer from cultural starvation, hence people developped the reflex to intellectualy survive.

I understand the notion of a private copy (I don’t get the whole concept yet, Id need to think about moral rights at first and believe me this is a tricky subject). People don’t want to be thieves, most of them would like to be considered as respectable persons. They just need to survive, with food at first, but humans need culture, this is one of the things that differenciates us from most other species, we need to survive intellectualy too, by principle, and it is a right to get to educate yourself, education is culture. Don’t let the culture die.

NB: I actualy create all of my work that is available¬† on the web or the grid from scratch. But it’s been a while that I think about this, coming from an independant music label..I had to face moral right issues long even before you started to know what rezzing a prim was lol but I will make other posts on this subject. cheers

Everyone knows about this, even noobs, since everyone is a collateral victim of this bug that is the MOST OBVIOUS bug ever to happen on the grid since it’s the most visual and CONSTANT one and touches everyone be it someone who just brought his/her first hair – and me too. Unfortunately, when I build, this horrible piece of shit effect is getting in the way of everysingle perspective I could ever imagine. There’s not one single day without noticing it to the point when things can get ugly just because of that.
This MUST be solved, it’s been years, SL is about to hit the web, so it’s about time to erase this tiny bug which makes everything go wrong, everyday, everywhere, on everything.
vote for this JIRA. but seriously, this ruins a lot of SL experience, and can directly make someone never come back. How much people got turned off by this ? want more? lol
this must be on top of some todos list seriously.
I need a coffee.

I believe betatest started out on november 8 2010.
Our 3 Hangars Liquides regions have been selected to be one of the very few destinations of the project Skylight.
Then I could be able to start testing things a few days ago.
The experience is smooth, fluid, it has a very stable feel to it.
The default walking animation never looked so good.(lol)
This project has to keep on going, there is no way out of this. It is not possible to not be on the web today, not possible. SL has to be accessible via usual browsers. It’s so obvious that I wont even continue writing this post.

Using V2.3 at the moment, anyone who knows my work is aware that I need a good viewer, no matter what.
It’s working kinda flawless, my fps have been almost doubled, shadows are loading quickly.
And now I just couldn’t use any viewer using the old interface because it’s lowtech. I got addicted to the shared media I couldn’t go back. Replacing plenty of animated textures with real streaming TV channels, the ability to play my own stream when I build etc.
I like the new interface, which has a kind of transparent feel to it, you do not notice it very much, which is good for a developer like me since I want to focus on gfx. They removed the old annoying GUI sounds that was breaking my ears too.
There’s more to say, but Im just waking up.
Conclusion, saying that V2 sux is just about trying to be hype.
