      Cool Alexandre. How are you synthesizing that?

        I have long remembered how I did it, but did not remember. I work with different interesting synths and there are good luck. This thing is successful.

    Café Sophistry Begins 

    Greetings,

    The first Café Sophistry section, Gender and Virtuality, begins on Sunday, March 1 at 8:00 AM SLT. For those interested in the course on Sunday, it is also the day of the Convocation. This means attending a one hour class followed by the 10am convocation an hour later.

    An alternate possible time on Sunday March 1 is from 2pm SLT to 3pm  SLT. If you want to take this course on Sunday but would prefer 2pm SLT, please chime in.

    There is some additional information about this first section, and how to prepare for it, here.

      I like that one! There are some amazing fractals out there.

    • veyot 12:57 on 28/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Seeing that fractal, I was compelled to try some free fractal software. I watched fractals until I was dizzy and enjoyed changing the colors, clicking randomly on the choices that were offered. I bet fractal artists have their favorite settings. Thanks for posting that, AlexandreLois. Most of the ones I made looked like ferns or amoebas.

    Think it over get it ready and I will be putting out the all call!

    We can’t blog in a vacuum. We read other writers for sustenance and against whom we measure ourselves whether consciously or subconsciously. What do you think?

     
    • Pearl Grey 18:56 on 23/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

      So this is what I think:

      This is totally my approach too. (I’m not on Tumblr and can’t like or comment over there.)

      I read other blogs, and my time is indeed valuable to me, so I consider doing so worthy of my attention. I do measure myself against other bloggers, mostly on a spectrum or map of opinion, and to where my beliefs are in relation to theirs at the moment. I can easily identify what I agree with, disagree with, what I don’t have a clue about and what makes me think or rethink something.

      I barely register how I compare to how many followers, reblogs or likes other bloggers have. I make it a priority to respond to comments that I understand and which are relevant to what I’ve blogged about. And to be clear, I’m writing about the blog I’ve written since June 2012.

      I’m thrilled when I get a comment that indicates a kind person has actually read what I’ve written, not a “Great job!!! Check out my stuff!!!”

      No matter how much of a genius a blogger is, if they walk and talk like a narcissist, I’m not interested for long. We’re all busy but if there’s no connection, community or reciprocity ever, then I’m out.

      I wouldn’t dream of changing who I am and how I blog based on the feedback, or lack thereof, that I get. We don’t have to all agree on things or be in cliques.

      But really, writers who attempt blogging in a vacuum tend to quit, don’t they?

      • Izzy 03:31 on 25/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

        Thanks Paypabak! Thanks Pearl!

        We do need to read widely enough to not be lost in our own echo chamber – or maybe being lost is fine???

        But either way, I’ve read plenty of stuff on The Guardian or Huffington Post or insert-name-of-favorite-corporate-site-here, had a response, and then spent 20 minutes formulating my articulate response.

        I refuse to do that any longer. Nobody cares about your insightful comment on TheGuardian.com. I think ideally focusing on a community of peeps is the most fruitful. It might be The Community of MU Bloggers, and it might be some other community that’s meaningful to you. But whatever it is, I think consistently interacting with that group represents the best chance of creating something powerful, exciting, and rewarding.

    Sal Khan

    I wanted to share this inspiring talk by Sal Khan. It’s a great talk in general and he shares so many of our values at MU. Note especially when he talks about empowering the learner to choose their own goals. That’s the core of our philosophy.

      kk, what would you like on your sticker? The crest (yellow shield with red & blue balls) and “Medici University” logotype? Anything else? Or just that stretched long like a bumper sticker?

      Or there are those places that do t-shirts to order also, right? Do we have Design / Graphic Types at MU? Perhaps a challenge to design graphic t’s?

      We could actually (perhaps) upload all the entries and peeps could order what they like… THOUGHTS???

      Thanks for the first lecture and also for the blogging discussion we had a few days ago. It’s good to learn about the approach other bloggers have.

      Like I told you then, a few of us change our minds about our approach more often than others.

    • Veyot 13:37 on 18/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Those are great tips, Paypabak. I often neglect to get the notecard when I arrive at a place, so I am missing a good source of “words” to help in writing. I also want to mention that your blog looks so cool that I didn’t realize it was Tumblr—and for a beginning blogger, Tumblr is easy to use

    • Paypabak Writer 13:52 on 18/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Veyot: Tumblr is very easy to get started and yet rich in features, allowing me to add pages that are more or less static. I don’t care to spend a lot of time tweaking the platform, although I do try to update my static pages (blogroll, bio, even my Moonletters Index). I want to write not tweak.

      Pearl, I know what you mean in terms of changing approaches to expressing myself. First Life throws curves at us that do affect our virtual selves and we do well not to resist them.In that way the platform we choose does need to match up with the use to which we put it. But this is getting ahead of the game! Next “lecture” will address the tools of the trade!

    • Izzy 14:39 on 18/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Great Lecture Paypabak! I especially liked your advice Get it all, and log off! (exclamation point, mine) I too feel so torn between wanting to be present in IMs, but also needing to prepare content and post it.

      Some people use the SL “Busy” message, which seems like a decent idea, but I do want to be available and don’t want a sense that I’m too busy. Perhaps you’re right that writing time could go faster logged off. Even if you have to spend a minute or two of logging in to grab some detail, it might be worth it.

    • Izzy 14:45 on 18/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

      In your post you stated,

      my first “lecture” on blogging. (It may be the only one. We shall see.)

      You might post more “lectures”. And someone else might also post 1 or more. So Blogging Class might consist of several posts on multiple websites. Each post or lecture might be valuable by itself, but it also might be nice, for Blogging Class or any other class: VR Photo 1 etc, to have a Class Home page where students can see everything available, with links to go Read-Watch-Do, and discussion space.

      How might these Class Home Pages look? A page here on MU/Talk with a collection of resources? Or should we collect elements here and put out an official page on the MU website for the course? The MU site is kind of like our University Catalog, so materials might go there. Or the speed & spontaneity of here. Or…

    • rmarie 16:42 on 18/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Thanks Paypabak, this is great and I also will be watching for more “lectures.” The underlying message I got from your first post was to be organized and to be disciplined! Thank you for sharing your blogging methodology and recipe for blogging success!

      I am a mere blogger-in-residence and will leave the Big Brain concepts to my betters. I like posting to my blog–my count is my blife (sic), after all. It calls attention to MU to my myriad follows and allows for discussions either there or here. All this feedback has been wonderful. I am working on the next lecture, to be sure.

    Honeypot

    Just a geek moment here – when you have Open Registration as we do here on MU/Talk, after a couple of days, the spambots find you and you’re flooded with bad registrations and spam posts. We’ve installed a “honeypot” that’s designed to block those registrations and it does block most of them. But some get through. So we manually delete those. If you register and find yourself unregistered the next day, just message Izzy or myself and we’ll fix that. Sorry for geek speak! And TY for your participation!

    Greetings to the Medici University community. I am an artist-in-residence at Camilla 15 in Media Archaeology, a member of Yoko Ono College. I’ve created an homage to Yoko Ono using rubber stamps in my studio in honor of her birthday, Feb 18. My biological agent will be participating in Fluxfest Chicago 2015, honoring Fluxus artists with performance, mail art and intermedia in Chicago, USA this week. You can read all about it at my studio or on the web at http://andrewoleksiuk.blogspot.com. I am looking forward to meeting and friend~ing you inworld. I’ve been creating and researching for quite some time, so feel free to use me as a resource whether you see me in my studio or elsewhere.

     
    • Izzy 15:48 on 16/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Thank you Ti! I just can’t say how much both Yoko Ono and Fluxus mean to us here at MU. There are few things more inspiring in this life than the long tradition of their work.

      I can’t encourage everyone too much to follow the link you’ve provided. What a wealth of information about this week’s activities!

      Be sure to share this info with KATYPERRYOPOLIS.club GM Amber Grantham! I’m not yet sure of this week’s schedule @KPO! but we should definitely have Fluxfest Week Night! This week’s planned Bonfire of the Vanities night can certainly burn just as bright in another week.

      I love the enthusiasm generated here at Medici University. For researchers of Fluxus, the wonderful FluxusPerformanceWorkbook is available at http://www.thing.net/~grist/ld/fluxusworkbook.pdf and it is very suitable for reinterpretation in virtual spaces. Perhaps I will pull out my Dick Higgins poetry generator and Ray Johnson Fluxbox from “Magic Mushrooms” and share it with you in my studio. While Yoko Ono is among the most famous of the art historical Fluxus group, I am also fond of the work of Alison Knowles, Ray Johnson and Nam June Paik. The work of the original Fluxus artists (as named above, and many, many others) has inspired new generations of contemporary Fluxus practitioners, such as Reed Altemus, Allen Bukoff, Mark Bloch, Allan Revich, Bibiana Padilla Maltos, Catherine Mehrl Bennett, Picasso Gaglione, Adamandia Kapsalis, Jennifer Weigel, Darlene Domel and Keith Buchholz, just to name a few. Some of these folks will be performing in Chicago this week. Due to the rigorous terrestrial schedule, my inworld work this week will be limited. I will, however, make a point to share the flavor of Fluxfest with you all at Medici University.

    • Diptheria 06:00 on 17/02/2015 Permalink | Reply

      This is so fantastic! More Fluxus! This is dear to my heart, I am sending two pieces of mail art out today (belated Valentine editions). I am also writing several event scores for SL performance. What a time to be alive!

        Ordinary avatars sleep in the dry caves of the highlands. They feel safe. They breathe stale air. They do not want higher powers.

        But the avatar who leaps the Eleonora gorge like a spear to plunge into the waters below, she is not like other avatars. All other neighborhoods live in sterile blocks of safety and predictability. Only Maria dares to straddle the chasm of the Eleonora Gorge. Its residents are avatars of insight and power.

      The 1 March Convocation itself could be the parade. Or, if you’d rather keep the Convocation a more traditional event, the Pride Parade could be, perhaps the day before, on Saturday 28 Feb, also at 10am SLT.

      Feel free to IM pearlgrey resident or say hello when you see me at Medici.

      The audio on my laptop isn’t working so I don’t hear the ping of an IM and may not respond immediately.

      There is now one scheduled class and some office hours on the calendar. If you have a class schedule, please post it on the MU Talk Class Schedule: http://mediciuniversity.co.uk/talk/schedule/ OR contact me and I will add your scheduled class to the calendar:

    I first became aware of Medici University eight days ago. Through a series of winging- it steps, I’ve got myself a studio on Vashti 2, intending to study virtual photographic arts and creative writing.

    I’m not an academic and have been out of school for a long time. I also happen to have organ and brain damage from environmental toxins and other trauma. I’m gradually and brilliantly restoring myself.

    I’ve also faced some substantial discouragement and exclusion in Second Life. I’m passionate about demonstrating that I and my life matter as does my creativity.

    The set-up phase with the different sites here have been quite a challenge for me to navigate. When Izzy asked for help, I volunteered to encourage new students and somehow have obtained the title of Advisor of Students or something like that. I’ll put my heart into it. Feel free to help out if you’d like.

    I have a blog and Flickr:

        Fantastaic Pearl! Great Scarlett! Thank you so much for helping out!

        Yes Pearl, every place, MU, SL Help Island, A Prison in Siberia, A Tropical Island, they’re all opportunities to oppress or empower.

        Just about the most empowering thing I’ve ever seen anyone do is to stand up and say “I am here!” Or to shout it from your wheelchair. Or tap it out on a keyboard. I think that’s why the Pride Parade has always been such a powerful, beautiful, thing.

        Perhaps we should transform Chaplain Beedit’s Convocation on 1 March into a Pride Parade! Or schedule an MU Student Pride Parade shortly before or after that event.

      Thanks for stepping up like this, Pearl! I will extend an Add next time I’m logged in but if you’re inworld before me, please add me so I can bet in touch. My blog is all about the stories I find in SL along with the experience of it.

      Winging it? That’s the best approach to take in SL! Stay in the moment and say Yes. See you soon!

      And I have reblogged again, hoping to uncover all the MU community members on Tumblr. Next, I will run over to the copy machine in Tiffany Mosienko’s studio at Camilla 15 and make some copies to pass out on campus.

    Fertility Clinic 

    fertility_clinic_001

    MU AF&S Director Dr. Renie Schollerer, aka “Aunt Renie,” has actualized the build for The Avatar Surrogacy & Fertility Clinic in Maria.  Dr. Schollerer followed a successful career in women’s health and pediatrics with a focus on avatar fertility. She is an expert on avatar reproductive systems. For those who are interested in advanced genetic engineering, I hear tell there will also be a first-of-its-kind “salad bar” of designer chromosomes from which to choose, and that the clinic also specializes in painless mesh baby birthing practices. What a wonderful confluence of science and art! We’ll be watching for grand opening parties.

      Thank you for the lovely introduction rmarie!

      Yes, MU’s AF&SC needs to do some hiring! The facility needs:

      General Manager
      Attending Physician VR/OB/GYN
      Nurses (Delivery Room)
      Nurses (Chromosome Salad Bar)

      In addition to this staff, we’ll also be looking for Surrogacy Avatars, to help other avatars who want to start a family, but are unable or unwilling to personally carry their mesh baby to term.

      MU should also facilitate family adoptions. Perhaps that is out of the scope of AF&SC… so we may need a whole new facility! So much hiring to do!

      And most importantly, for those wishing to start families… whether by visiting the chromosome bar… or conceiving by traditional methods… or arranging for surrogacy… or by adoption… we welcome your visit to MU. We offer Virtual World Class service! From the MU Family to Your Family!

    Campus Evolution!

    MU Campus, 5 Feb ’15

    I just added the 73rd photo to our MU Flickr Group and I took a moment to scroll through all the other 72 images that we’ve posted. When I got back to #1 I was shocked – a little bit by how different the campus looked, but even more by the date! OMG how much things have changed in just 11 days!

    Thank you all for being a part of this experiment / odyssey / investigation / celebration / drunk walk / poem of co-creation.

    Chaplain’s Update 

    naotoHattori

    You who bring so much inspiration, excitement, experience, and essentialness,

    With the influx of artists, students, and faculty arriving at MU in prep for the semester, the much-awaited materialisation of a bar on campus happened last night. This essential infrastructure is located on the East Side of the bridge over the Eleonora Gorge. It is called BBC Brewery. Izzy and Vanessa, your branding and innovation should make every virtual campus vibrate with beer-induced (and other-induced) inspiration.

    Along other inspirational lines: the kiosks! Of course they are intended to be informational, but random kiosk art will be such a fun way to get people moving around and looking at things. As Izzy announced in VB Friends: Add MediciUniversity as a friend get edit perms on the kiosks.

    (As one always in search of new manifestos and screeds, I find this latest kiosk development most exhilarating.)

    Please note: The Chaplain will be IRL for 3 or 4 days, but will be checking this forum as well as the class schedule.
