Tonight at 8:00pm SLT, Robb Rail is hosting an open-format political discussion he’s titled the “Wednesday Night Political Extravaganza.” Should be good, and plus… extra points for using the word extravaganza.
From the blurb:

We do this every Wednesday, so mark your calanders.”

Yet another discussion about the relationship between SL and RL. Can there ever be too many? Apparently not. Get on over there. The hosts this time areĀ  the smart folks of Digital Cultures, so it should be a good one.

Today at 2:00pm slt, Celedon Kakapo is hosting a discussion titled “What do you tell people about your Second Life?” This is a splendid topic and should be a great discussion. Be advised that the discussion will be recorded and may be used as part of a research project. From the blurb:

“An exploration of what people tell their friends and family about SL – if anything. Do you hide your SL activity? Is admitting to SL shameful or your dirty secret? What this is about?”

The potential for SL to influence and be influenced by RL is significant. On Saturday, Absolute Balderdash (what a name!) will hold a discussion about this topic as part of a research project. Should be fun and interesting. From the blurb:

“How does SL influence RL situations or vice versa? What does SL mean to people? The discussion will be recorded and may be used as input to a research project.”

A poetry slam in SL. Of course. Why has that notion never sprung to my mind? Why have I never seen a poetry slam in SL before today? Have I not been paying close enough attention? Well, that’s possible. In any case, there’s a poetry slam tonight, and I think it’s a swell idea. And it’s hosted by the ever-energetic Ina Centaur.

Sayeth the blurb:
“Open mic poetry SLAM in a rustic waterfall-brick garden on the ground floor beneath the famous Warehouse Grove Gallery.

Random audience members will be chosen to judge the art of poetry on a scale of 1 to 10. The top scorers will battle head to head in a totally spontaneous impromptu grand finale. Come to read or sprout words outta yer mouth — or for laughs!”

Tonight — 5:30 to 8:30pm slt.

Today at 7:00, Starsitter Quality is hosting the fourth in a 4-part serieson “Skeptical Buddhism.” If you’ve missed the other three, here’s your chance to catch the last in the series.

From the blurb:

“Fourth in a 4-part series on Skeptical Buddhism, in plain English. What is the emptiness that Buddhists talk about? And can it show us a different way of being, not just for us as individuals, but for Buddhism in general?

Please stay and talk afterwards. All are welcome, from the curious, to the novice, to life-long monks.

TP directly to the Skeptical Buddhist’s Sky Sangha in Toowoomba (125, 203, 386), or IM Starsitter Quality for a TP.”

The blurb for Extropia’s “Thinker’s Discussion” today contains these rather startling sentences: “In the future, the internet will be comprised of trillions of sensors. There might be AI that can see, hear, recognise emotion and even read minds.” I wonder on what Extropia basis this assertion, don’t you? Well, get over to Support For Healing a 3:30pm slt. You better go. The sensors will tell me if you don’t. [insert mad scientist laughter here]
