Followup to Episode 126.  Now we know what Second Life is, what is it you do there?  Just about anything and everything, I suppose.  Second Life as Social Media.  Second Life as a virtual world and "actual" place, where you don't spend time killing people or critters for gold.  Mostly. 

 

Oh, it turns out Chris Kirby has a brand new album, "Wonderizer."  I just got my MP3 copy from Amazon (and then Chris wanted to send me one, oh well...) and I look forward to listening to it.  Might be getting a signed CD for a later giveaway, we're talkin'.  ;)

Episode 126 -- Second Life : This Is Not Your Life

Leo LaPorte said on "This Week in Tech" that he abandoned Second Life because "it's all about sex."  Made my jaw drop to the floor.  After I picked it up, this is what I wanted to tell you about Second Life, what it's not "all about," and what it is, at least from my viewpoint. 

Used a tune called "Day Job" from Chris Kirby's album "Vampire Hotel" on the show.  Back when I interviewed him on The IDSL he said I could use his music on my show.  He may even vaguely remember who I am.  I encourage you to buy and check out the rest of the album, too -- I think the title tune from "Vampire Hotel" reminds me of almost all the clubs in Second Life where I've DJed late into the night.  Except of course we take vampires a lot more seriously in Second Life.  ;-)

Oh, it turns out Chris Kirby has a brand new album, "Wonderizer."  I just got my MP3 copy from Amazon (and then Chris wanted to send me one, oh well...) and I look forward to listening to it.  Might be getting a signed CD for a later giveaway, we're talkin'.  ;)

Crap, quoted Cunning Minx from the Polyamory Weekly podcast, and forgot to provide a link.  Till now.

Hiber-Nation 125 -- On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 3 Part 2

Chapter 3 - OF THE LIBERTY OF THOUGHT AND DISCUSSION.  Part 2 of 2

"Having said that Individuality is the same thing with development, and that it is only the cultivation of individuality which produces, or can produce, well-developed human beings, I might here close the argument: for what more or better can be said of any condition of human affairs, than that it brings human beings themselves nearer to the best thing they can be? or what worse can be said of any obstruction to good, than that it prevents this?"

Hiber-Nation 124 -- On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 3 Part 1

Chapter 3 - OF THE LIBERTY OF THOUGHT AND DISCUSSION.  Part 1 of 2

"Such being the reasons which make it imperative that human beings should be free to form opinions, and to express their opinions without reserve; and such the baneful consequences to the intellectual, and through that to the moral nature of man, unless this liberty is either conceded, or asserted in spite of prohibition; let us next examine whether the same reasons do not require that men should be free to act upon their opinions—to carry these out in their lives, without hindrance, either physical or moral, from their fellow-men, so long as it is at their own risk and peril."

Hiber-Nation 123 -- On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 2 Part 4

Chapter 2 - OF THE LIBERTY OF THOUGHT AND DISCUSSION.  Part 4 of 4

"In politics, again, it is almost a commonplace, that a party of order or stability, and a party of progress or reform, are both necessary elements of a healthy state of political life; until the one or the other shall have so enlarged its mental grasp as to be a party equally of order and of progress, knowing and distinguishing what is fit to be preserved from what ought to be swept away."

Hiber-Nation 122 -- On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 2 Part 3

Chapter 2 - OF THE LIBERTY OF THOUGHT AND DISCUSSION.  Part 3

"To abate the force of these considerations, an enemy of free discussion may be supposed to say, that there is no necessity for mankind in general to know and understand all that can be said against or for their opinions by philosophers and theologians. That it is not needful for common men to be able to expose all the misstatements or fallacies of an ingenious opponent."

Coming Up Short...

I have never made much of a fuss about asking for donations for the podcast.  This may have had some impact on the fact that I have only gotten one since I've been doing these.

Turns out I came up a bit short this payperiod.  Libsyn is asking Paypal for the "rent" on the website.  Paypal is asking the bank where my paycheck is automatically deposited.  And there's nothing left in the bank.  So now I've been hit by overdraft fees, twice so far.  Not your fault, not your responsibility.

But ya know, if the needed $24 were in my Paypal account, the bleeding would stop, at least for the moment.  So I'm asking.  If you've ever considered donating to help me with these projects... now would be a very good time.

Thanks.

Hiber-Nation 121 -- On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 2 Part 2

Chapter 2 - OF THE LIBERTY OF THOUGHT AND DISCUSSION.  Part 2

"Aware of the impossibility of defending the use of punishment for restraining irreligious opinions, by any argument which will not justify Marcus Antoninus, the enemies of religious freedom, when hard pressed, occasionally accept this consequence, and say, with Dr. Johnson, that the persecutors of Christianity were in the right ..."

Hiber-Nation 120 -- On Liberty by John Stuart Mill Chapter 2 Part 1

Chapter 2 - OF THE LIBERTY OF THOUGHT AND DISCUSSION.  Part 1

"... Let us suppose, therefore, that the government is entirely at one with the people, and never thinks of exerting any power of coercion unless in agreement with what it conceives to be their voice. But I deny the right of the people to exercise such coercion, either by themselves or by their government. The power itself is illegitimate. "

Hiber-Nation 119 -- On Liberty by John Stuart Mill  Chapter 1

Chapter 1 - INTRODUCTORY

"The subject of this Essay is not the so-called Liberty of the Will, so unfortunately opposed to the misnamed doctrine of Philosophical Necessity; but Civil, or Social Liberty: the nature and limits of the power which can be legitimately exercised by society over the individual."
