Many of you in Sansar already know Maxwell Graf. He was one of the first few people invited into the then-closed beta test of Sansar, and I interviewed him about his experiences for the Sansar Newsblog. He’s been a constant and knowledgeable presence at countless in-world meetups. He has also created five memorable linked Sansar experiences, two of which were my Pick of the Day. We all owe him a debt of gratitude for pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in Sansar.
Well, Max is going through an unfortunate real-life crisis at the moment; he posted this message to Plurk not too long ago:
Today I heard about a special event, via Wagner James Au’s New World Notes blog, and I wanted to use the Sansar Newsblog to help spread the word. A group of Second Life content creators is banding together in a special fundraiser for Max:
You can support Max by attending the Going to the Max event, running from October 3rd-10th (more details forthcoming), or by going to his in-world store in Rustica in SL and buying some of his wonderful creations! Max also has a smaller selection of his creations up for sale on the Second Life Marketplace, if you’d prefer to do your shopping there rather than at his in-world store.
I must confess that I had such a belly-laugh reading the clever and witty titles on the spines of his books in his Ex Libris Modular Library Collection, that I bought the whole set to place in my Linden Lab home!
Seriously, he must have spent hours on the texturing for the book spines! Here’s a close-up look at just one row of the books in his SL-centric book collection:
Max is a great guy, and he doesn’t deserve to have this shit happen to him. Anything you can do to help him out in his time of crisis would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
