Second Life, a good, clean place to live. Or is it ?

Linden Labs not Eco Friendly ?

So after spending some time with friends in SL, I was using the map tool to check if some other friends were home before I tp’d in on them. I use a graphics tablet to control mouse movements in SL, something which the map interface does not like, so I had to zoom out.

What I discovered.

What I discovered was a large stretch of ocean between the main continent and the north continent of the SL Grid. So I teleported over, and had to fly the rest of the way (an experience soon to be gone, hopfully). What I found was a little odd. An oil rig in Second Life.

A little investigation lead me to a pipe terminating 3 sims away !! That’s a fair distance in SL. I tried to enter it and had to make a mini-me so I would fit (I’m quite a tall feller). I could go much further than a couple of bends, due to some barriers in the way.

Returning back to the Oil Rig, I manage to obtain the following information:

  1. Hamlet Linden knows of it’s existance.
  2. Hamlet Linden has a sense of humour (he made jokes about Greenpeace furries chaining themselves to the rig, which never took place of course).
  3. Bub Linden denies it’s existance.
  4. Bub Linden denies the existance of Hamlet Linden.
  5. Bug Linden wears breathing apperatus to protect himself from the noxious fumes emmited into the SL Biosphere.
  6. The Rig appears to be Govenor Linden’s office, although it is made by Eric Linden and others.
  7. The office appears to contain a few post-katrina B&W shots.
  8. The map in the office indicates it supplies quite a few regions with something. And I mean quite a lot.
  9. The Rig appears to produce prims. Constantly.

.

Yes it appears that the prims in Second Life are produced in much the same way oil is- an entirely non-eco friendly process.

Summary.

I took a lot of photos. Just short of 70 in fact. These photos, and others will be uploaded to my Flickr account once I have upgraded it to premium. If I upload all the photos onto my Flickr account, everything else will get chucked off/hidden.

Photos, along with conversations with Bub and Hamlet Linden will be posted eventually, if not shortly.
