So there I was in Harvard Law School’s Berkman sandbox in Second Life auditioning dances for my upcoming dance video (stay tuned here, don’t miss it, it’ll be here in a week or two!) to explain the creatively complex Creative Commons licensing system dancing to hot music from – where else? – the CC license music sharing site ccmixter . . .
. . . while at the same time shopping at Wicked Tattoos trying to make myself look as much as possible like the vid’s heroine who’s a Lisbeth Salander sorta girl . . .
. . . and wondering if CC founder Larry Lessig might be around here someplace and could explain the Creative Commons thing — maybe he’d even dance in my music vid! — since he dreamed up CC in the first place and now he’s a prof at Harvard Law School – and this is Harvard’s sandbox after all . . .
. . . then figuring maybe that’s not such a hot idea since Harvard’s Austin Hall SL replica across the field from the sandbox looks like it’s boarded up with plyboard or something, probably being rebuilt from the last time I saw it when a fire was burning inside as if some urban hooligans had hit it . . .
. . . then deciding any help from Lessig is probably going to be virtual anyway, so I head over to his youtube interview vid here where he explains CC pretty well . . .
. . . then getting distracted by the fantastically funny mashups of the Steven Colbert/Lessig interview like the one here . . .
. . . completely minding my own &%*!D?*&! business in other words . . .
. . . when outta nowhere comes this popup message on my screen from (shudder) Sandbox Security!!!
OMG! Kicked outta Harvard! (“pleasy”???)
“Pssst! It’s your boots!” whispers a sandbox neighbor right before I get TP’d out of Harvard into the metaspace beyond. “And your hair too, probably. Tone it down a bit.”
