Second Life made me learn stuffs… and I liked it!

This week’s Monday Meme is brought to you again by Mr. Draxtor Despres. He was having a conversation on twitter with a friend who stated that Second Life pushed him into learning 3D modelling. Draxtor then tagged me and suggested this as a meme, “things Second Life has made people do (or learn)” and since I myself have learned quite a few things because of SL, I figured this should definitely be my next Monday Meme!

Meme instructions: Share things that you have learned because of your involvement in Second Life, either personally or professionally. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments so others can come by and read your answers as well!

There’s a double handful of things I’ve learned in SL:

Port Caledon skies [HAM 073]

  1. Script use to make prims do clever things, even though I do not understand scripts and am not tech savvy
  2. airship design to sell steampunk flyers, how to run that business, and why it does not work, and be OK with that
  3. creation of seamless textures
  4. creation of skins for SL avatars (OMG, skins are so very hard to do well)
  5. creation of clothing and tattoos for SL avatars (slightly easier to do)
  6. how to be social at parties, and then also keep the friends you make
  7. how to be romantic
  8. how to shake off RL stress in a virtual place
  9. how to get Avatars from all over the world/grid to add their energy to a Relay For Life community build project, from a sketch and notes and chat text
  10. how to stay awake 24 hours for a virtual run around the Relay For Life event (notable efforts for several years)
  11. how to take better pictures, even approaching exciting images that make me happy
  12. how to give my time to others, when they ask with grace, and how to say ‘no’ (when needed) with grace
  13. how much fun manners can be
