Talking Imprudence at Linden Rx Hour: Sept 11, 3pm

Grant Linden has invited me to talk about Imprudence at the Resident Experience Office Hour next week. I’ll talk for a little while about the project rationale and goals, then open it up for questions and discussion.

Where: Benjamin Linden’s office in Second Life.
When: Thursday, September 11, 3-4 PM PDT

Like all the Linden office hours, Rx is always open to anybody to attend, so come visit if you can make it! Rx topics cover a lot of different areas, including UI and usability, new user disorientation, and more. It’s always good times (if you’re interested in that stuff, anyway!).

If you have a question or discussion topic but can’t make it to the office hour at that time, leave a comment and I will try to bring it up for answering discussion next week!

    I find it reprehensible that the Lindens would use their own office hours to create a new form of FICing — having residents with huge personal campaigns and axes to grind to come in and flog their hobby horses.

    You also wilfully and aggressively misrepresent the criticism of your viewer and concepts for the viewer as “sullen majorities” or “abusive types” who “don’t wish change”. That’s not it at all. The problem is your concept of the viewer is as wonky and tekkie and stupid as the Lindens, and is just as counterintuitive. We don’t want it made WORSE.

    Who the hell are you to arrogate yourself to imposing a viewer on the public, anyway?! If the majority don’t support the changes, could that be telling you something? Seriously, your arrogance and hubris know no bounds, and you’ll be getting the firmest possible pushback from me.

    There are obvious things to change about the viewer, but there are certain inherent things that require entirely new solutions to really improve it, and your viewer ideology is merely cosmetic and going in further geeky directions.
