There is a blog here

mostly by Jurin Juran


There are some really good screenshots of MetaPlace at the Alphaville Herald.  I’ve taken a few myself, not public yet  due to the  beta status, but I haven’t taken any as good as these are. Now I need to log back in there and explore those places. I have invites also, if you are interested.

I’m too busy exploring virtual worlds to blog

I am virtually everywhere

You will find me virtually everywhere in the metaverse. I currently spend time in Second Life™®. Twinity, Entropia Universe, Novoking, VastPark,Kaneva,, vMTV, Active Worlds,, vSide, IMVU, Gaia Online, Multiverse, MetaPlace, Hipihi, and many more. Also look for me on some of the more popular social networking sites such as, FaceBook, Twitter, Plurk, Ning, Vox, MySpace, etc. if you are interested. I explore, research, and document immersion and mental synthesis in social systems such as: Virtual Worlds, MMORPG’s, 3D Chat environments, and similar structures.

Virtual Philanthropy

I am deeply involved in the development of avenues for people to network and contribute to charitable causes through an avatar when they may be unable to do so using their real life identity, due to security concerns. I support efforts such as Kiva and Microplace, ways to invest and help end global poverty. Another involvement is with the humanitarian action of UNICEF. I strongly encourage donation to and sponsorship of these organizations.

Avatars for Change has just launched its $10,000 Change Your World Contest and Avatars for Change needs your help to win! Any Group that recruits 100 members by September 15th will be entered into the contest. Of course if our group wins, the money will be donated to charities! Help us win this contest and come learn more about Avatars for Change by joining our group on Razoo. But your main reason to join should be to support worthwhile causes.

If people can’t change the world, maybe the avatars can

In the Metaverse, different worlds and cultures can meet and maybe change the world. Avatars can join together to bring all their worlds together into one, and into the world of the everyday human people, a virtual to RL immersion. It is my dream to see all these worlds join forces and change the internet as we know it.

eh, nothing

I’ve been called a Virtual World pioneer, explorer, and historian. I research and archive Virtual Worlds, not all is public. Don’t ask how may years I’ve been on the internets. So many accounts, so many years, so little time. This blog is about my most recent adventures, and is a little slanted toward Second Life®
