Having read the hype for the past few months I have decided to give Second Life a go. So, tonight, I have signed up for my Basic Account.
I will be sure to keep you posted on my thoughts over the coming weeks as I explore the world.
Anyone got any experiences, good or bad? Please share them!
As always, i’m really interested to know what people think.

I have been really disappointed this year with not being able to make it to Digital ID World in Santa Clara due to my impending job move . Not only have I missed some of the great debates that have taken place, but I have also missed the oppourtunity to meet, face-to-face so many of the people that I talk to (through channels such as the Identity Gang) the name of “Identity”.
I have been following a number of blogs including Phil Windley’s blog about the event with great interest and once I manage to get through all the related posts, I will post my thoughts here.
Gloria Gaynor and Security
Saw this great post by Emergent Chaos. It seems Gloria Gaynor now does security!
DON’T FORGET MY BLOG HAS NOW MOVED TO HTTP://BLOG.PDTOAL.COM
Rohan Pinto recently blogged here about a new online OS that he had come across, YouOS.
Under his recommendation, I had a look as a demo user and must say from a pure ‘technical geek’ point of view I was impressed.
From the comments on Rohan’s site, YouOS certainly doesn’t seem to be the first web based OS, although it is the first that I have come across. My main thoughts about the OS were:
1) Easy to use
2) Fast to load
3) Like the session continuation
Like Rohan says, I can’t see it being long before YouOS or some other similar company get snapped up by Google.
I do have concerns over long term usability. I found it an interesting new toy but aren’t sure that I would actually use it everyday. First and foremost would be my concern over my data being held online. I like to keep my data locally where I can keep track of it. I’m sure YouOS will eventually offer some type of encryption but for now I do see it as a major concern.
However, I will watch with interest to see where the product goes in the near future.
I don’t know what Rohan Pinto is talking about in his recent post about commercialized blogging!
Looking up at the SUN this morning, I was trying to decide what to put in my WORDPRESS BLOG today when an idea popped straight into my mind. I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea so I gave my colleague a PING to find out his opinion. He wasn’t sure either, so I searched on the ORACLE that is GOOGLE. After trawling the web for hours I decided to go and ask my wife. When I saw here I thought she was looking RADIANT. LOGIC told me I ought to tell her but I decided against it. Instead I thought I would go down the pub, so I put on my RED HAT and off I went, eating my APPLE along the way!
I would never dream of it blogging for commercial gain.
Who do I send my invoice to??
The UK government has finally brought together a number of disparate organizations in order to try and crack child abuse on the internet. (Link: CEOP)
This isn't before time. Hopefully, now some serious effort will go into stopping this abuse and making the internet a safe place for our children to use again.
