Today, I attended a special ceremony held at the Virtual Existence Society in Second Life, where I received an honorary title: Friend of the VES (I first wrote about it here.) I was one of three honorees who elected to attend the ceremony in person.
Xaos Princess received an award for her services promoting High Fidelity and other virtual worlds:
Erik Mondrian received his award for promoting Second Life through his art:
And I received my award for services to virtual world journalism (I decided to wear my new EXMACHINA mesh avatar for the event):
It was a fun event, with a good crowd in attendance! It was spoiled only by a griefer attack, which thankfully took place after the ceremony itself when we were chatting.
After the griefer was dispatched, I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours chatting with people who are as passionate about social VR and virtual worlds as I am! I’d like to thank Luca and the rest of the members of the Virtual Existence Society for the award and for the convival conversation.
