    Newton, Mr., TO: Reality, Loose, of Schedule, RE: 

    About this “Collaborative City” thing. It’s excellent. Let’s do it.

    Here’s the schedule I’d like to work around — Jane’s walk 2017 is 5-6-7 May:

    http://janeswalk.org/cyberspace/second-life/

    I’d really like to have something up to Walk/Talk for Jane’s Walk. So what if we kept the current Week of Welcome format for something like 3 weeks, then went for a clean slate, giving us 2 weeks of Collaborative City before Jane’s Walk. The “city” might or might not be finished, but at least there’d be 2 weeks of something to walk/talk. Maybe we could slice the 3 months up into 4 blocks of about 3 weeks. In the 2nd half we might have another open block and another special themed block… ?

    • 1-20 April – Weeks of Welcome
    • 21 April – 5 May – Collaborative City

    What do you think???

    And by you, I mean Newton, Mr., but also I mean anyone else who wants to chime in with ideas, thoughts, questions, etc!

      Thanks V, Only concern is getting a jump on organizing the 2 week city project in terms of participants. Also Newton and Marie are limited by RL starting the week of April 10. I worked your comments into the Google Doc, and others can see it too if they want to.

        got it — would it be better to do the Pop-up City (or whatever it’ll be called) after Jane’s Walk then?

        • rmarie 20:17 on 06/04/2017 Permalink | Reply

          How much time and energy do you and Izzy have for the pop-up cities in April and May? As of now, Newton could kick it off the week of May 8 and run a workshop on May 13. But we will be away for 7-10 days between the 20th and the 30th.

          I enabled full edits in that google doc! What the hay!

            In addition to my above reply, I think it’s a good idea to wait on the pop up cities until May and June, so that some community building can happen. I think people need to get a sense of how they can contribute to builds, even if they don’t build with prims and mesh (texturing, project managing, other types of collaborating).

            • Vanessa 05:45 on 07/04/2017 Permalink

              so keep the Weeks of Welcome through Jane’s Walk? And then maybe move on to Pop-up City on 8 May?

              That might be good. I do think we need “ramp up” time for CAA-VUP. I’m thrilled with what’s happened so far, but it isn’t the beehive that LEA23 was. Partly I think that ramped up slowly also. And partly I think we’d been doing more projects so the VBF group was more connected and engaged. Peeps like Newton, Mr., have been awesome at continuing the creativity, but at least on my end it’s been a pretty long radio silence. Still, it’s exciting to see both old friends turn up, and to meet new peeps. It’s interesting the number of CAA-VUP participants who are “new” to me, but have actually been on the grid for 8-9-10 years. I’m not sure how much being next to LEA5 helps, but for sure it at least helps a little. LEA2 on the other hand, can, of course, drown in their own damn curtain walls! 😛

      Many people who are currently rezzing on LEA1 are very connected and engaged with each other. For the past 2 years, they have been producing together inworld steadily, and at least 6 of them have been working together very closely. The amp up will be good for cultivating awareness of these groups, for everyone’s sake. But this awareness thing goes both ways. People who are rezzing on LEA1, by virtue of doing that, are encouraged – dare one say obligated? – to reach out to others and make themselves and their interests known, and chime in.

      See you Saturday!

    BAOC Award 

     

    It is hard to choose a new Big Avatar On Campus award winner from the many creative, involved individuals at MU, but one stood out to me and I select Newton. He has created an excellent series of classes with his Cafe Sophistry, which has already covered Gender and Virtuality and Time. Class sections start with an interesting philosophical discussion and end with the creation and display of art! In addition to facilitating the class, Newton has provided some delightful artistic entries and handled controversy in a graceful and thoughtful manner. I’m looking forward to the next section. Congratulations Newton!
