Is it just me?!

Or has blogospheric "discussion" about topics such as Web 3.0/3-D Web reached absurd proportion. I think so. Or perhaps it's simply that I'm obsolete. That is possible, by some methods of measurement.

But today, driving home from our headquarters, I noticed that a storefront, one that I watch, as they sell niche products, had a sign advertising Webkinz. I confess I knew nothing of this company. And no, I don't have children -- a factor.

My point is this: How does such a big phenomenon develop without us knowing? Do we all need to be parents these days to keep up, kids being the proverbial canaries ;)

Russian Language and SL

I know I've been sounding like the proverbial one-trick pony lately, and posting about Second Life, but today I messed with doing Cyrillic there. Not to mention the fact that I received my visas for visits to several Russian-speaking nations today, so I'm psyched.


You may have noted that, during official installs, you're prompted for primary language, and Russian is not listed. Check out secondrussia.com and you'll find links to an exe that'll install the correct true types and client with Russian menuing. It seems in general a cool site as well.

Вот это счастье :)
